Not slick.

I asked Eldest Child how she was feeling about me dating. She said, “Oh that (name of submissive) guy, right? That’s cool.”

She asked me if the point of a date is to be pretty. I said no. The point of a date is to talk to someone and hear their opinions and values and story so you can learn more about yourself as you figure out why you have similar and different opinions.

She said, “And you still aren’t leaving dad?”

“Not even a little.”

“All cool. Have fun.”

    Nice!

    I’ve laid some groundwork, but I have not honestly spelled it out for my 9 yr old. My 29 year old is hip to the truth. She doesn’t want to hear about it, but she’s got the cliff notes. 😉

    Yeah.. It feels risky. I feel that giving her that information would equal her discussing and processing with friends at school, it’s a small, private school with a tight community. I don’t think I can handle being any more the freak of the parents than I already am perceived to be.
