"Mom, is Daddy Jacob and Maia's real daddy?" Lizzy asked nonchalantly as she zig-zagged a purple crayon across her coloring book.
"Sure he is," I said. I paused, and then I decided to explain.
"Well, a long time ago, Jake and Maia’s other daddy and I were married, but we sadly got divorced. So then we moved back in with Grandma and Grandpa Osmond, and then Daddy and I met each other and got married. Then we had you, Jenny, and Hailey. But Daddy loves Jacob and Maia just like he loves you. Does that make sense?"
