A funny from a while ago......
Reading a story about a black mother who was asked by a visiting child if the mother made chocolate milk (while she was breastfeeding the baby) reminded me of a funny story that happened to us, after the birth of Emma.
We have friends who struggle with infertility, and they were blessed to be chosen to adopt a baby. The little girl came home to them a week before I went into labor with Emma. Mackenzie was fascinated by their baby, who was a very dark skinned African baby.
When the Hubster made the call to tell our children that their sister had arrived, Mackenzie asked several questions about her - she was very excited. Finally, she got onto the phone with me and said "Mommy, what color baby did we get?" When I told her that her sister was white, just like the rest of our family, she said, "Oh, darn! I really wanted a black baby! They are so cute! Maybe next time!"
The Hubster and I are as pale as they come, so if this was to happen, I think there would be some explaining to do!
