About as non-traditional as it gets...

Hi all! Looks about like this is where my son and I fit in. We live in a household that includes me, his father, my mother, my grandmother, my uncle, and my brother. My husband's mother is gay and my sister is transgender/bi. Talk about getting a pretty broad view of things from an early age!

That's great! My son has two godfathers, my bestfriend and his partner! I cannot tell you how many times he has made a comment and I've thought "it is so amazing how ignorance is taught!" he would never ever think of some if the horrific things people say cause he sees nothing wrong with the "non-normal"

It's good he's got a broad view of things ! I think it's great kids learn from an early age that "non traditional" is actually very normal lol.

LOL ... I know how you feel ... as of April, our household was:

-- Me
-- My son
-- His father
-- His father's fiancee (wife, as of May)

This weekend we were all on a plane together, passing the baby back and forth. Explaining the relationships is always interesting in public.

It's cool that there are no issues between you and baby's daddy's, fiancé.

Re: About as non-traditional as it gets...

Welcome! Yeah I have quite the diverse family myself. I myself am jewish I married a bi racial woman we had 3 kids together. 1 from me who is 1/4 black. 2 from her that are bi racial on both sides. We are all different colors with different hair and eyes. I love it! My daughter is transgendered.
i thought that was bad and then my wife and I split up. We can't get divorced because of DOMA. Not all states recognize our marriage. I am seeing a woman and she has 2 kids from 2 different fathers. One of her kids is half philipino. trying to explain our family situation to anyone is exhausting. Gay, Trans, Bi-racial, multi cultural, different religions.
My kids are lucky. They have lots of experience in different situations and have so much love in their lives.
