It seems like a lot of folks are struggling with how to explain today's SCOTUS ruling on marriage equality to their kids. I'm no expert, but when I explained it to MY three today it went really smoothly, so here's what I did in case you're having a hard time:
Me: Hey boys! Today the Supreme Court ruled that everyone can marry whoever they love best regardless of whether they're born male or female, in all fifty states.
Little Child: Cool!
Middle Child: Dat's nice.
Big Child: We should call Uncle X and Uncle Y and tell them congrats.
Me: Does anybody have any questions?
Little Child: Can I have some tortilla chips?
Middly: Oooo me too!
