I'm afraid my six year old daughter might ask "Why do I have two moms?" What do I say?

    Just explain it to her in simple terms.

    "Sometimes a woman falls in love with a man. Sometimes a man falls in love with a man. And sometimes a woman falls in love with a woman. That's what happened with your two mommies"

    For now at six it is not that problematic to respond though at some future time it will be a more sensitive and complicated response she will need to hear.

    For now you might she is lucky to have both of you in her life.

    Just tell her the truth... it's not like you can hide it forever. She should be more accepting the earlier on she hears about it.
