I thought I would contribute to the “your relationship with your kids” series. Some minor details to begin. Both of my “kids”, a son and a daughter are now over 30 years old, so they are not really kids. Both still live in town too. I’ve been divorced for over 10 years. My ex-wife knew that I cross-dressed from early in our relationship. Crossdressing was not an issue with my ex-wife, maybe because I hardly cross-dressed due to being very busy with my career and my kids’ activities: coach, manager, chauffeur, etc.
How my kids found out. I had a MAJOR injury with multiple ramification; one of the many specialists I saw was an urologist and he suggested I wear women’s panties. About the same time, my wife mixed my underwear with hers and I found her panties helped with the issue. My wife decided I should wash my own clothes so our panties wouldn’t get mixed up. One day my son’s girlfriend found a Victoria’s Secret thong stuck in the door ring of a front-loader washing machine. She asked my daughter, then my wife if it was theirs – which it wasn’t, so the only person it could belong to was me. That’s how my kids (then teenagers) found out about my underwear.
I have never had a conversation about my cross dressing with either kid. They see that I get my nails done, fingers and toes, my daughter and ex-wife have even borrowed some of my nail polish. They see that I wear 4-inch-high heels all the time. And they know I have quite a few heels. My daughter is not happy that I wear heels, so I wear more tamer 4-inch heels when we go out together (no stiletto knee highs).
That’s the extent of what they know – well of what I think they know. I will be honest if they ask, but I will not start the conversation.
