Below is an excerpt from Sarah’s interview with People magazine:
James Wilkie is 4 now. Has he begun asking tough questions?
He goes to school with a lot of kids who have different families from his, so he’ll be like, “Jen has two mommas” or “Charlie has two poppas.” And so we’ve been talking about what it is to be gay; I want him to understand it in terms that aren’t overwhelming to him. But he asks about everything. Death is a very big conversation piece.
Do you have trouble explaining these things to him?
Actually, the things that are far more complicatedfor me to answer are any kind of science questions. He has a really keen interest in science. I have basic fundamental knowledge – but I don’t know what he’s going to do about homework! I’m glad my husband’s smart about that sort of thing.
