The other night, I was getting ready for bed, and Nicholas was on our bed playing his 3DS when the following conversation happened…
Nicholas: Mom, what is “gay”?
Sherry: It’s when a man loves a man or a woman loves a woman.
Nicholas: Oh. So, if Lemmon [our female dog] was a boy, and I loved her, I’d be gay?
Sherry: Nope, like romantic love. The way that Mommy and Daddy love each other. When a boy wants to kiss and marry a boy or a girl wants to kiss and marry a girl.
N: So, am I gay?
S: Do you think you are?
N: I think, if I were going to kiss someone like you and Daddy do, then I’d want to kiss a girl.
S: Then you’re probably not gay. But it would be okay with Mommy and Daddy either way.
N: Can I watch Phineas and Ferb?
