is he half?


lady: your baby is really cute.
sean: thank you.
lady walks off
sean continues looking for children's motrin on shelf
lady comes back
lady: is he half?
sean: half what?
lady: like half mexican?
sean: nope, just caucasian.
lady: he is just so cute, you'd think he was half something.
sean: thank you (i think?).
on a side note, i did think he looked asian when he was born,
if that matters for anything.

maybe there was a switch at the hospital. its hard to keep track of all those babies. just kidding. he is so adorable and keeps changing. he will look different when he's 1 and 2 and...... silly lady in the store.

I get a lot of comments like that, but I guess there is a reason. When Eddie isn't around people ask "so is your husband Polynesian" Or "I think it is so great that you would adopt!" The funny thing now is watching people try to figure out quite how Troy fits in the family. It makes me giggle a lot.

that's when you look at the lady in the store and tell her that "caucasians" can be dang cute all by themselves! obviously my family is not a good example of this, but yours is! :)

There's something really, really funny about that story. Thanks for telling it.

People are funny, aren't they? Amazing the things strangers feel comfortable saying.

He is super cute though...not just half-cute either, 100% full on cuteness! :)
