If I’ve learned anything it’s to pass on love to my child. My husband and I don’t spend any time explaining who should love who with Z. To us, love is love.
My parents divorced at a young age and went their separate ways. Dad remarried and mom, well, didn’t.
I’ve never been asked why my dad remarried but believe me I’ve been asked why mom never remarried.
I used to lie about why.
- She isn’t interested in dating
- She doesn’t really want to be in a relationship
- She doesn’t have time! Hello, 3 kids, single mom!
- She likes being alone- duh, doesn’t everyone just want to be left alone!?
- She’s overweight, maybe when she loses weight
- She wants to focus on herself
Lie. Lie. Lie. Lie. Lie. Lie. You get it.
She’s a Lesbian.
That’s right. I said it. I’m not a lier anymore. Man, that feels great.
I’ve lied to everyone in my life until I met my husband. Oh, yea, and the drunken night with some of my college besties and our need to share all. Yea, that happened. Anywho……
Why the lies? “No one cares.” People would tell me.
Oh, yea. Sure. Tell the world as a teenager that is coming into herself- I could barely contain my period let alone the fact that my mom was a lesbian. Then, I got so used to all the lies that I never went back to those people and corrected them. I just brushed it under the rug.
Until now. I just took a leap of faith. I wrote a children’s book about Z’s two grandmas.
I’m so proud a publishing company invested in me and my family story. I’m absolutely thrilled that Z gets to have representation of his two grandmas. TWO grandmas in love.
In love and that’s okay. It’s really, okay!
He will never have to lie. He won’t have to make up stories about Noni & Grandma. He won’t have to feel ashamed. He will just be able to love and enjoy them. Isn’t that what having grandparents is all about!?
We think so.
You can buy the book and support the movement! Equality for all.
