Conversation with Sebastian (6 year old two-spirit child that I co-parent)
I picked Sebastian up from kindergarten. They were the first child to exit the classroom, they popped out and I said "Hola mi amor." They ran to me and I kissed them. Another parent came to say greet us and invite us to a play date and referred to Sebastian as "he," I agreed to tell my sister about it (she's Sebas's mama) and said "and Sebas goes uses they pronouns now" (this is a rad parent). Sebas said "Hey! Who told you?" Your mama I answered back. Here is the conversation we had in the car.
Me: M'ijo you are using "they" now do you wanna tell me more about that?
Sebastian: You 'ready knew! But, I heard mama call you "they" when you were in the bafroom and then heard you tell an amigo that you were a "they" cuz' you feel like a boy an' girl and I feel like a boy an' girl too.
Me: Thanks chiquito, well m'ijo our people were Indios who thought people like us have magic. Now people like us who are both boy and girl, man and woman are called "two spirit" because we are people of the land and we carry both boy and girl energy.
Sebastian: You mean magic like super powers?
Me: Yeah kind of like super powers, we have magic and can use it to love a lot.
Sebastian: Like powers like how much you love me? Like I can love people as much as you love me?
Me: Yes, m'ijo exactly.
