School Trip

The school were James goes is having a field trip in September.  This field trip is at a camp in September for 3 days.  This is great, he is excited and so am I.  As I was looking over the form, the school included a rooming request list.  On the request list, it asks who the student would like to room with.  Great, no problem then came the line student needs to room with same sex.  Ok, this is fine but…….who should James room with?  I know he identifies as a boy but over my dead body will he sleep in a cabin with all boys.  I do understand some parents who have children that identify as girls, might be uncomfortable with James.  The first thing that came to mind is WTF.  I am taking a deep breath and I will wait until August to see what happens.

Identity Party

So the date of the Identity Party is set for this Monday.  James and I are so excited. At one point James took over the planning of the party which is fine. He has decided to serve hamburgers, hot dogs and salad.  He has even planned some games and activities for his friends.  It is going to be small since he decided to have it on the long weekend.  LOL

Friends and family are coming so this will be a good day.

I am so proud of him.

Confused

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.
