I always forget that some people just don't know.
I'm just me!
It's not something I think about 24/7.
I just live.
At school I talk about my kids and my family all the time.
On Friday the questions began.
Students: You have kids? How many?
Me: Yup...I have three.
S: How old are they?
M: Almost 14, 10 and 6.
S: 14! Man...how old are you?
M: How old do you think I am?
M: You are getting an F.
M: You are getting an A!
M: Close...I'm almost 30.
S: And you have a 14 year old? You were 15 when you had her?
M: Well....no...not really. I didn't pop her out...my partner Tammy did.
S: Oh...so you adopted them?
M: No...not yet. I have to wait.
S: Are you married?
M: Nope...I can't.
Light Bulb Moment For Some.
Then the whispers begin.
Some smack others who just don't get it at first.
One girl said I was the coolest teacher she's ever had.
Another girl said that her friend's moms were getting married in Vegas.
Coming out is a continuous journey.
It really never ends.
You meet new people every day.
The kid's schools
We just live.
Try to be good people.
Set good examples.
Then maybe the world will change.
