The 7 divorces

My 5-year-old daughter just read the Snow White story to me. She read it pretty well, until she got the 7 divorces. I tried to tell her that they were dwarfs, and not divorces, but she couldn't seem to say dwarfs. She explained to me that they are divorces, just like my divorce. Sigh.

I am still trying to figure out how it is that she thinks that a lesbian couple can have a baby. Her school is apparently trying to teach her tolerance for the boy in her class who is being raised by lesbians. Tolerance is fine, but I suspect that they are misinforming her about the role of fathers.
