Answering the Question that Will Shape Him Forever: "Can Two Girls Love Each Other?"
By HelloNiqua on June 08, 2012
I want to be poignant. I want to be honest. I want him to understand.
"Their hearts picked each other, Scrumpet. There's really no way to explain love, or how it happens, it just does."
"Oh. But... Is it okay?"
He puts his fingers into his mouth, his nervous habit, and I take his hand, hold it in my own and I tell him:
"Love is so, so amazing! And when one person loves another person, it doesn't matter if it's a boy and a girl, or two girls, or two boys, or even two people who are not quite sure if they are boys or girls -- it is always okay."
The answer satisfies his curiosity and he skitters off to finish playing Batman with Mercutio and Severus.
I know he's only five, but I can't wait to see who his heart picks out, because they will be incredibly lucky to have the unconditional love of my son.
