Moments like these...

On Monday, our family went out to eat with our surrogate brother/cousin Austin.
On the way home, JoJo (my sister) started a rousing game of "I Spy"
Second round in, she says "I spy something black"
Belly-ome immediately responds... "ME!!!"
Love it.

On Tuesdays, the boys take a breakdancing class.
They love it.
There is a girl in the class that B-Man asked me about last night.
B-"mommy, that girl in our class is brown but she has blond hair?"
Me- "yes. That is because her mommy is white and her daddy is black."
B-"but she is brown and she has blond hair... how does she do that?"
Me- "because some of her is like her mommy and some of her is like her daddy."
B- "you mean she's NOT adopted?"
Me- "No, son. That is her first mommy that she comes with every week and her first daddy is black just like you."

Ha. How cute! I'm sure that is confusing to understand--he's just relating to himself. So cute! I'm glad you write all these cute memories down. :)

Your kids sound too cute! We have lots of discussions too on different shades of color in our family, white grandparents and black grandparents, and mom (me) too pale, and dad dark and the kids just in the middle.

I'm new and I'm dying to know where you found the girls' dresses from the family picture. I really need one!

I have good news and bad news...
The bad news is that my mother- in- law and I made the dresses by hand. (That's 9 hours of my life that I will never get back)
The good news is that I got the idea from a friend of mine who does sell her dresses.
Her web site is
Let me know if you end up buying one for your little princess!

I say it was well worth the nine hours!

Thanks for the info.
