Things I have already had to explain to Jade:
- Why one of her preschool classmates has two mommies.
- Why my mom is not my older brother’s mom and why I don’t know his mom’s name.
- Why the same brother lives in North Carolina and his kids live in New York.
- What a ‘Single Lady‘ is.
- Why it is important to wash your hands. Yes, I showed her the video! Don’t judge me!!!
- Why we put dead people in the ground; and why we leave them there all by themselves.
- That daddy works to make money and we use that money to buy the things we need.
- That everybody is going to die and we don’t know when or how.
- The meaning of the word ‘consequences’.
- The meaning of the word “infuriating”.
