I WANT TO HAVE BLACK SKIN!!

Taiger has done a few funny things this week that I will probably end up posting about. But here is ONE.
Taiger, as he sat on his bed rubbing his hand: "My skin is so smooth!"
Mommy: "Yes, it is!"
Taiger: "Do you want black skin like mine?"

SO CUTE!

(Taiger has been told many times by many different people how smooth his skin is. The adults usually then turn to eachother and comment on the glorious texture of "black" skin. Taiger is NEVER "part" of these conversations and I never imagined he was even listening...I should know my son better than that!)

He's so cute! No, no Ghana this summer :( Hopefully in the future. We decided to move forward with our Ethiopian adoption so we are saving money and looking forward to going to Africa to pick up our little girl in the near future. Are you going? Harmony

It's funny how little kids pay to skin color sometimes. One day Ruby pointed out a little girls to me who looked "like her." When I said "yes, she looks a little like you" she said "yes, she has really curly hair"! I loved that. It wasn't a race thing at all!
