I was out shopping today and thought of you. The woman at the checkout packed away my shopping and, as I watched, I thought that you would be screaming silently had you been there. I bought icecream; want to share? I’ll come to you, you’re not so far away.
While I’m here, I was wondering if you had time for an opinion. My little girl asked me who I loved most in the world. I told her, “You, of course, and the little man.” She replied that she knew that, but she meant in the other kind of way. She wanted to know who I was most ‘in love’ with.
Do I tell her honestly that I fell head over heels with another woman long ago? Would she understand that at the tender age of 6? Or should I lie? How honest should you be with your children?

Dear Yours Truly,
With my OCD on the rampage, I would have probably walked out of the shop. I’d love to share your ice cream, but I’m lactose intolerant… would be a bad plan. Maybe in the holidays when I don’t have to be at work!
I always said I would be honest with my children, but I only told my daughter recently that I date women. She doesn’t care, but then she is a little older. I think it depends what you’re comfortable with… Maybe my blogging friends will have a different opinion. I’ll sleep on it.
