As with any big topic, be honest, but keep it simple. Has she asked anything about it? A lot of experts say don't say anything unless asked, it could confuse them. I would tell her something along the lines of: Many families have a Mommy and Daddy, but some people have other types of families that are just as special. Our family happens to have two mommies. Maybe give other examples, like a mommy and a grandma, or just a mommy or just a daddy. I personally wouldn't tell her anything about it not being considered "normal". Let her grow up as much as possible with the love you share in your home, before she has to face some people's prejudices. This way, she can be full of self-esteem and know that while her family may be different, it is a family full of love.

This irritates me just like when people have their children call someone aunt or uncle that are not even related. There is a reason they are called relatives!!!! Adoption obviously being the exception.
