Seven-year-old poly girl :)
 
I'm really good friends with this couple who are both poly. Danielle* was telling me about a conversation she had with her seven-year-old step-daughter Jenny* about her little boyfriend at school.

After asking whether he'd kissed her yet ("No, I can still run faster than him"), Danielle asked Jenny if her boyfriend had any other girlfriends. Jenny answered "yes, Lisa" and Danielle asked her what she thought of Lisa. Jenny said, "she's pretty nice, and she's funny too."

Danielle took this opportunity to give Jenny some poly-support: "Well, that's good. It's important to like your boyfriend's other girlfriends."

I thought it was cute :)

Awwwwww
 
That is a sweet story.
Isn't love simple until our minds become clouded by the mechanations of culture and society. Having raised a housefull of kids here, and being heavily involved with loads of children along the way, I often reflect on how much I learned from "them" - and not vic versa. :)

That is so adorable! I'm glad that her kids are being raised to be accepting of different kinds of love. :D
