Most scientists, doctors and mental health professionals agree that people are born gay, that it is as natural as heterosexuality. Nothing you did or will do has any bearing on whether or not your child is gay. Whether you agree with this or not, though, isnt really the issue. The question is, are you willing to love and support your child?
Is your child no longer keen on getting lunch box notes from Momlet alone Mommyor does he drop your hand like a hot potato whenever another kid his age appears? Or perhaps hes like my son, Noah, who recently put the brakes on my plans to chaperone his school field trip.
We cant have too many cookies, right? Noah called from the kitchen.
Umm, I cant imagine a scenario where that would be a problem, I replied, grinning as I typed. Guess I'll need to take three Zumba classes every week now, definitely three. And maybe do a few situps.
But if Holly has her way, all I really need to do is rake.
Looking for a thrilling way to enjoy the Halloween season with your family? Last Sunday, mine headed up to Gurnee for Fright Fest at Six Flags Great America and had a fabulous time. October may just be our new favorite time to visit, after all, and I have a hunch that folks hitting the rides this weekend will enjoy the sweetest treat of all: short lines and comfortably warm days.
Water, check. Sunscreen, check. Sunglasses, check. But Oooh, I forgot to Google canoeing, I winced, as my husband backed the car out of the driveway. Id hoped to soak up some last-minute tips on how to avoid tipping Noah and I had canoed before, but never in a race and certainly not for six miles. But we were pumped, ready or not.
My son and I participated in the 49th Mid-American Canoe & Kayak Race on the Fox River last Sunday. Hey Noah, I heard about this canoe race I ventured, a few days before. You and me, Mom! he shouted, high-fiving me. Yes! And I didnt even have to talk him into it. You see, I have an unrequited love of paddling.
