The daily routine of packing PB&J sandwiches into my daughter’s Wizard of Oz lunchbox has come to an end until after summer. She just graduated kindergarten! Her daddies are so proud of her accomplishments. We sat in the audience sobbing as she accepted her diploma and exclaimed that math was her favorite subject this year. There must be some radical gay agenda behind her liking math. I mean, “normal” children like PE or art. Where did we go wrong?
Just before graduation, we took a trip to Washington DC for family lobby day with Family Equality Council. We were featured on CNN. Our daughter was instrumental in gaining the attention of staffers while walking the halls of Congress. She drew a picture of her family that she shared at each meeting. It was one of the most beautiful stick figure drawings I have ever seen. She neatly labeled “Dad” over the stick figure with the gray hair, “Daddy” over the stick figure with the blonde swoop hair, and “Carrigan” over the adorable stick girl with the pig-tail braids. It was amazing to see her point out each member of her family to staff members in DC. It is such a radical gay agenda to show a happy, healthy family through the eyes of a child. We were so proud of her for just being a kid and for not having an embarrassing meltdown. We pretended the halls were underground tunnels in Hogwart’s. She love Harry Potter, so we were all set!
As we prepare for a full summer of travel and educational school camps, we ponder how much we have done to destroy the sanctity of marriage over the past year….and for some reason my mind is drawing a blank. We have participated in a few weddings but can not think of a single divorce we caused. I’m sure there is a couple out there somewhere that we ripped apart with our carpool queue, dance recitals, poolside picnics, and bicycle training. I will keep you posted as the destruction is unveiled.
