This morning as we were taking a bath...
"Are you my real mommy?"
I laughed out loud, "Of course I am your real mommy. What makes you ask that?"
She replied, "Because you're so white and I'm so brown!"
She is right about that. Her skin was the perfect "cafe-con-leche" color from the moment she was born. She takes after her daddy. I call her my "cinnamon stick".
Abi's question was a valid one, I suppose. She has a friend named "Edie" who is Mongolian and was adopted into an American family. Edie's mommy and daddy and brothers are white, so I guess that is what got Abi thinking.
She's one smart girl!
