Grace turns 5 years old today.
Oh my goodness they grow up WAY too fast. My baby... MY BABY is 5!!!! I hope she continues her baby snuggles with me...
We were driving to her birthday party at a jumpy-jumphouse place when Rose (my little thinker) decided to engage me in a serious and most curious conversation:
R: Mom, what do you call it when a boy wants to marry another boy or a girl wants to marry another girl?
T: (after nearly choking on bottled water) *cough cough* Um...sweetie, that's called homosexual.
T: Homosexual. Or gay. Some people call it gay. Gay marriage.
R: So it really does happen?
T: Well, gay people do want to get married but unfortunately some people think its wrong. And they won't let the gay people get married.
R: That doesn't make sense. Its a free country.
T: (hell yeah it is!) Yes, I know sweet girl but some people think that it is against God to marry someone who is the same sex as you.
R: I don't know if God thinks that but I think God wants us to love each other.
R: How do they make babies then?
