...is a picture on my fridge (secured with my fav magnet) of a sunrise? sunset? drawn by my 6 year old niece, L. She and her sister S (8) and their brother A (3) were over for a sleepover on Saturday night.
My sister in law A-L is still living with us but spends many nights at her boyfriend's. On Saturday the kids stayed in A-L's room. J brought the kids up to bed. I was downstairs but could hear the conversation going on upstairs and nearly melted with happiness. It went like this...
S: "How come A-L has such a little bedroom?"
J: "Well, she just lives with us for now but pretty soon this will be a baby's room instead."
S: "You and Auntie are going to have a baby?"
J: "We'd really like to. What do you think of that? Do you want another little baby cousin?"
L: "So, you and Auntie L are going to get married?"
S: "Yeah, remember? This summer! 'Cause girls can marry girls!"
A: (in a happy shout): "And boys can marry boys!"
It's amazing, isn't it? At 3, 6 and 8 they are totally fine with it.
