Hmm. My daughter asked me a tough question today.
"Mommy, do you love Daddy? Like for Marrying?" Truthfully? Fuck, No. Am I gonna be that blunt with my 4-year-old? No.
However, somehow "I have a healthy respect for your father" doesn't cut it with kindergarteners. Probably has to do with that whole not being able to grasp respect as a concept at that age thing.
So I went with "I always will a tiny bit, because he's your daddy, but no I don't love him like married people. That's [his GF]'s job now."
That seemed to satisfy her.
Gotta love the tough questions. I have a feeling this will be the first of many over the years.
