So it has been one year since I gained a son, James. It’s funny how time flies. It doesn’t seem possibly.
James has decided that he wants to have an Identity Party. I am all for this idea and I think it will be fun. Unfortunately, it is too late for this month so it will take place next month. James just wanted to invite the family and then it grew yo his friends but only a few. I am afraid to ask how many now.
James has decided the menu should be junk food, pop, BBQ hot dogs and hamburgers. He also wants games. He is going yo plan the entire party. The only thing I have to do is soy. ARGH.
Ideas are welcomed.
I know it has been a while since I last posted. Lots have been going on with the family.
As everyone knows, I love both of my kids. I tell them all the time that I love them to the moon and back.
I am confused when it comes to James. I thought I had this transiting under control – wrong. I am good that James feels like a boy and now dressed like a boy (he has done this for months now). The thing I am confused about is his clothes. Some days he is dressed like a boy and other days not so much. He sometimes dressed is burgundy leggings, flower headband, or hat. This is just some examples. How do I take him seriously when he sometimes dresses like a girl. This is so hard for my ex and I when he dresses like this. I feel this reinforces my ex thoughts that this might be a phase. I know in my heart of hearts that it isn’t. I don’t understand how he can dress like both a boy and girl.
I know that it shouldn’t matter how he dresses and there is no right way to dress. I guess I am still old fashion and you dress what sex you identify with.
Any help or advice would be great.
The articles below are concerning the States. The articles below might upset you. I know these articles upset me but I think it is good to post.
I am posting a few articles as I believe it is important to be aware of what is taking place around us concerning trans issues.
I heard about the gender-neutral bathrooms proposal for Hamilton Libraries on the radio the other morning. Here is the article about the proposal.
I would like to know what you think about both articles.
This is a article that appeared in the New York Times about raising a transgender child. I really enjoyed this and I hope that you do as well.
I would love to have an article written about our family.
James is so in love with his boyfriend. It is so nice to see. He smiles so much.
I have had James boyfriend sleep over. Things were fine. The sleep over did start a conversation about sex. I didn’t go into much detail but wanted James to think about this.
In my mind, James is still a kid and immature about this. Then I remember when I was a kid – hence the talk. LOL
The nights James and I are together, I try to remember what is was happy for in that day. So often, he will say that he spoke or saw his boyfriend.
Ohhh, to be young and in love. What a great feeling.
I am outspoken about my family because I am hoping that someone can help me or I can help someone.
I meet this wonderful person who told me about a camp. The camp is called 10 Oaks. I am thinking about sending James there.
He has never been away for camp but I think it would be a great experience for him.
