today, stormie noticed someones skin color. it was the first time ever. or at least the first time she said it out loud.
we were watching doogie, and raymond (the orderly) entered the room.
stormie *mommy. he's brown.*
me *mommy is brown*
stormie *no, mommy is pink and stormie is yellow*
me *but our color doesn't matter right? we still love everyone*
stormie *yeah. mommy i wanna be brown too*
i'm sad that she notices our color. for the obvious reason, but also because that means she's growing up and will soon realize that she wasnt made by me. then comes all the questions and feelings associated with that.
only god will be able to equip me with the right words and answers. and of course you all - my dear blogger friends.
when was the first time your children noticed color?
