Dun Dun Dun- Another Opinion Post!
I want to start this post by saying we do this blog for YOU. We are going to gift it to YOU when you’re an adult so we will cover some adult topics on here like this post. We started this with a goal of keeping a detailed record of what you and your family was going through as you were growing up. After a bit of writing this it’s grown in popularity and we have gained some of the most AMAZING, supportive, and cool readers. It has been a blessing in your mommas life, for real. That being said we don’t do this blog for followers but I do keep my little eye on the numbers as they grow and feel a little special when someone shows interest in our little family. I was SHOCKED when I posted that last entry we LOST a handful of followers. I’m not upset about the fact we “lost” some readers but more about the context in which it happened. As our dedicated readers know we are a very open minded and “alternative” (I hate that word) family. And the fact that a picture of two woman kissing scared some off is shocking.
I have said this a millions times and I will say it again, Baby G you can be ANYTHING you want to be as long as you’re not hurting yourself or anyone else. This is all encompassing from work (as I stated in a previous post) to your sexuality. (YES I said her sexuality) You can be gay, straight, bisexual, trans-WHATEVER. We will love you no matter what you feel you are because you will always be our child no matter who you decide you feel right loving.
You’re uncle is gay. Your dog is gay (no joke), and even more relevant your mother is bisexual. And I would like to make something clear I’m not the “got drunk in college and kissed a girl bi”, I’m the “I have had long term, meaningful, wonderful relationships with woman” bi. I’m not ashamed and I will raise you to not be either. We believe in our household sexual identity is a predetermined genetic decision no different then your hair color say.
The fact that people would “shun” this blog because I posted a picture of two woman kissing (which was a total inside joke between a friend and I) is really sad in my mind. Tell me, are we a different family now in your mind because I’m proud of who I am? Am I a different person to you now because I have loved a woman? Has my opinion on natural child birth and attachment parenting lost it’s weight with you because I’m not ashamed of who I am? SERIOUSLY?! I am a good mother, I was a good wife, and I am a good person no matter who I love or date.
I love my brother, I love my dog, I love myself. I see beyond the shell of a person and can look in deeper. When (or if) I decide to start dating again I may date a woman, who knows baby someday you may even have TWO step moms. I. Don’t. Know. I don’t know what the future holds for me, you, your dad, or our family right now. BUT, I do know we are a family of love not hate and it will always be that way no matter who’s in it.
Love your (above ALL else) Mom
