I know! The hell. It's going way too fast. Yesterday diapers, now menstruation pads. Lol

ten months pass...

Our older kid came out this summer as gay but we already knew since they’d had a girlfriend for several months. Now they are 9 and came out to us an non-binary and are out at school but not with relatives. I had an easier time with the first coming out only because I’m more familiar with it, not that I’ve been anything but supportive about the gender expansiveness.

yeah, social knowledge is learned and the social paradigm for gays is better established now than for non-binary.

So true. Also I had to wrap my head around the fact that they are being called a different name at school by friends and teachers alike. It really is not so shocking considering they stopped wearing dresses right around turning 5. Anyway, it comforts me how comfortable my kid is self-advocating. They even asked the teacher for a new solution when they didn’t feel right going to either the boy or girl segregated sex-ed lesson. In response, there was a special lesson created just for them.
