that easy child is gay. Yesterday while easy child was home from school, sore throat etc. and I took her to the dr.s we had a chance to talk. She has a new "girlfriend". I asked her if girls can go with each other to Prom...which is next year. She said she wasn't real interested in prom, she kind of smiled and said, "yes, girls can go together". I asked her how long she's known she was attracted to girls. She told me since she was around 13 years old. I asked her about kids in her future...she said she doesn't know. She said she would like to be a mom but that her bowling career and psychology field will probibly take up most of her time. She DOES feel some pressure from family about having kids some day. Apparently oldest difficult child has talked to her about this and young difficult child's wife said she would like lil Joey to have some cousins. I am STILL so glad she can talk to me about her sexuality and her feelings. I feel honored that she trusts me so much. She still can't talk to dad about it...they have sort of a "don't ask don't tell" policy going. Just an update on my sweet easy child. by the way, she and her team also won first place in state for bowling recently. I am very proud of her, dad is her high school bowling coach. Tammy by the way, my mother in law was also gay, closet gay, it was only revealed in honesty to me after her death, by her partner. husband still doesn't know.
