Funny Quotes

Brayden leans over to me today and says, "Mom, will Davis be black when he's older too?"

I answered, "of course, baby, that's the color God made him."

He replied, "what color will I be when I grow up? Tan like I am now or can I be black too? I think I'll be black when I grow up. I can just paint my skin!"

How cute is that?

The other funny thing right now is the kids' responses while looking at my Uganda pictures. They think all of the kids are Davis. Now, I guess I may have expected that from Brayden and Gracie, but Davis does it too! How can I get that through their heads. . .just because the child is black doesn't make them Davis! Oh yeah, if I say no. . they ask if it's one of Davis' friends! How racist does that sound? Now, I know it's just because for months I've showed them pictures on blogs of kids adopted from Liberia and introduced them as Davis' friends. . but still, it sounds horrible! If it makes anyone feel any better. . .Davis thinks that all adults are me or Greg too! Apparently they just don't LOOK at the pictures I show them!

My kids do the same thing although if it's a child under 2 it's Judah and if it's between the ages of 2-9 it's Isaiah. All the other ones are their birthmom or dad... Crazy. They do the same thing with my friends daughter who was adopted from China.
