You’ll never know what she’ll say

Published March 1, 2015 by lynn k scott

One night, my little one is looking for a snack. We had sushi earlier, which is a great dinner, but you still need a snack before bed; at least she does.

I suggested she have one of the Asian pears I just bought. She looks at the pears.  Then turns to look at me.  Her very matter-of-a-fact response was, “Mom, you know I only eat American pears.”

If I had been drinking something, it would most definitely be all over my laptop. Luckily, I didn’t choke and just laughed. So I break the news to my half-Filipina child. “Dear, you do realize you are half Asian, right?”  The look of disbelief on her face was hysterical.  I know we’ve had this conversation before, but it was funny.  A few moments later, she broke out in song about being American and Asian.  She’s now, according to her, AmAsian (pronounced “amazin”).  

I never can tell what she is thinking or how her thoughts will spill out of her mouth.  All I know is I have the makings of a hysterical book taking shape with every utterance she gives.
