Speechless

Published July 29, 2015 by lynn k scott

As I was hugging my precocious nine-year old good-bye this morning, the following conversation occurred:

Lil miss: Mommy, you’re really white.
Me: Yes, dear, I was born this way.
Lil miss: White like a vampire’s butt.
Me: *speechless*

I am Irish descent; I’m white as rice.  My adorable meztisa (half Filipina/half white) child is a beautiful caramel color.  As she puts it, her mom is light, she is medium and her dad is dark.  I love her analogies.  She never ceases to amaze me with her perspectives.
