My daughter was looking at our Blog – ‘mumsthewordblog.com’ today and she referred to one of the stories about our book: ‘Mum’s the Word’ by Lis Norman & Tracey Samios – ‘Two Mums’ take on life with kids’. She said “You know mum, ‘Two Mums’ take on life with kids’ makes it sound as though you are a gay couple raising kids”. I said “Really?” I had never picked up on this, but I stopped to think about it and could see how people could perceive it this way. Not that I think there is anything wrong with two gay women raising kids, but it’s just not our situation. Lis and I are heterosexuals, happily married to the fathers of our kids. We would be interested to know if you would have interpreted the line ‘Two Mums’ take on life with kids’ in the way my daughter has suggested?
