Toronto being such a tolerant city, no one blinks when introduced to multiracial, recomposed or gay families (tick the right box). We love the fact our Dwarves are exposed to different family models and take it as the norm.
However, they know the basics and lately asked about the origin of the “seed” necessary to make a baby when a child has 2 moms (I suspect Dwarf 1 was starting to think we had fooled him on the topic).
We simply explained it is true someone has to give the precious seed, but that is does not make this person a daddy. In summary, what makes a dad is the time and love dedicated to a kid, and not biology.

Dwarf 2: “A mom!”
Next time this one is sick he’d better call dad, mom will be on vacation.
