Conversation over dinner at our place:
J: mum how old is aunty bec? And how old is Melinda?
Me: bec is my age and Mel is the same as daddy.
J: when are we going to see them again?
Me: we're going to see them in November. Because they're getting married and we're going to the party they're having afterwards.
O: why can't we go to the wedding?
Me: they're getting married in America.
J: that's cool
O: (thinking) mum, is Mel a boy? I think she's a girl.
Me: yes she's a girl, babe.
J: i thought it had to be a girl and boy to get married?
Me: no mate, you marry whoever you love and want to spend the rest of your life with.... it just makes it harder to have kids if it's a girl and a girl or a boy and boy.
(Pause while they think)
O: well they don't really need kids. They've got blade and blondie and frog and mook (dogs).
J: and optimus fluffy prime (snake)
O: they've already got their hands full!
J: and don't forget the fish
Lol. Cool kids.
