This evening as I was putting my 5 year old to bed, she said "Mommy, you are the only one I want to kiss. Ever."
I paused, and asked her if she wanted to kiss her uncle and her aunt and the 83 year old neighbor who is so good to her, and various other people, and she agreed that she likes kissing those people.
I then said that someday, when she is really grown up, maybe she will have a boyfriend or a girlfriend who she wants to kiss. And she said "EWWWWWWWW!!!!!" and "YUCK" and made all sorts of contorted faces.
And then she declared "I WILL NEVER EVER EVER KISS A BOY!"
I went and got my phone and turned it on video and asked her to say it again, and she was even more animated and emphatic when she knew she was being recorded.
So I've got it on video. I kind of suspect the kid is going to be heterosexual. And if she is, on the night of her first school dance, I will show that video to her date. And her Jr Prom date. And her Sr. Prom date. And I will taunt my sweet little girl with this video for years to come.
I probably won't. But it is fun to think about.
But if it turns out she is a lesbian, I'll be able to say she knew it at a very young age.
