Last night while sitting with my kids as they ate dinner, I apologized to them for not being myself and being so sad. My 9yr old son said it was okay, and he asked if it was because of her. I don't normally get into heavy personal stuff like this with my kids, but I also don't lie to them. I'd rather teach them about life, age-appropriately of course. So I said, "Yes."
I continued answering a few questions, probably saying more than I should have, but not before he responded, "That doesn't make sense. If she's in love with you and wants to be with you, then why isn't she? That doesn't make any sense."
Heh, I know, kiddo. Makes no sense to me either. My 10yr old daughter then asked if she was scared because of the gay thing, because some people don't like it. God, I love my kids.
And nope, that's not it, pretty girl.
Apparently I like hearing myself talk.
You can hear me recite this
if you're into that kind of thing.
