*sigh* Sorry For The Confusion!

Ry: "Mom, am I white?"
Me: "Yeah, you are."
Ry: "Oh good, I like being white."
Me: "Oh yeah?"
Ry: "Yeah, it's better that I'm white. White is the best color."
Me: (chuckling at her)....then I notice the disgusted look I'm getting from another parent...she walks away as I call out..."She means the color of her soccer jersey!!!"

isn't it amazing the many things kids say so innocently- yet can be taken a whole other way if you don't have all the information. Ashlyn is begging to play soccer this year- I think I am going to have to give in this time

HA! Princess likes it when she's white, too, because with the reversible white and red jerseys, it looks pink when it's on the white side :-)

When my oldest sister was around 3, she was at the store with my mom and she suddenly yelled, "Mommy, that man is BLACK!" And the black man turned around laughing and said, "I sure am, honey!"

The End.

My brother took Canyon to the zoo with his family the other week and there was a large group of black children there and I guess they were of the darkest skin. Anyway, when Canyon seen them they said he just kept yelling, "Look at those black kids! Do you see those black kids?" Of course he didn't mean any disrespect, he was just excited. They were so embarrassed. lol
