Blogging LGBT Family Day or What you do in a herd

Blogging for LGBT Families Day 2012Every year i want to blog for LGBT family day, and every year I fail. I am beginning this blog post at precisely 11:56 PM on June 1st. I hope it counts.

There are things I want people to know about my family. Lots of things. Do I have time to write them all here? No, I do not.

Who is my family? Well, that's recently changed. There is me, my partner J, my son e (or peanut), and then there is my sister M (she is the new one in the family). We are the family who lives in our small apartment. I work, my partner stays home. My sister goes to school. E is 4, and he goes to preschool. Who are we? We are a family. We support each other. One of our favorite sayings is "that's what you do in a herd." A herd. Yes. It's corny because it's from a movie...a kids movie. In it, these prehistoric creatures of different walks of life come together to help each other. They form a herd..a family. And that is what they do. It's also what we do.

It doesn't matter who we even are, what gender, what race, what economic status. We don't care what people think (well, that's not true, exactly...people do care what people think) but we go on in life despite what people think.

I think we are beautiful.
