Princess loves playing with the webcam on her laptop to pretend she's the host of her own talk show. She was giving her "fans" a tour of her room over the weekend. She saw Hubster and I walk by behind her on the screen.
I heard her say, "So that was my Mom and Dad. You might be wondering why they're white and I'm brown. We'll, long story short..."
And then she stopped because she noticed me hovering.
I encouraged her to finish, but it was a no go. So I got silly with it. I said, "What do you mean we're white and you're brown? I'm brown, too!!! Look at all of these brown spots I have all over me!" and pointed out my millions of freckles.
She said, "And you're giving them to me! I'm growing freckles just like you!"
She has some freckles across her nose and cheeks. I decided to celebrate that we now have freckles in common because she's so excited to share this feature with me instead of get stuck in mommy guilt that they are only there because I haven't done a great job making her apply sunscreen since she moved to FL to be my baby almost three years ago.
I'm still hoping she finishes her explanation of why we have different skin tones one day. She's open about being adopted now, but I'm still curious what her version of "long story short" sounds like.
