The following conversation occurred today at the Dr. office between me and the receptionist:

Receptionist: "Aw, your baby is so cute."
Me: "Thank you, he's my big boy."
Receptionist: "What nationality is he?"
Me: "What?...him?" pointing at my child with a confused face.
Receptionist: "Yeah, he looks like he has some other nationality in him."
Me: "Uhhh...white and white, his dad is a red head and I'm blonde. We are both as white looking as they come."
Me continuing: "What nationality did you think he had in him?"
Receptionist: "I don't know exactly...something different."

WHAT? haha. What ELSE could be in him? Does he look part Hawaiian, Asian, Hispanic, Black? That conversation was a first (and probably last). haha.
and just is a picture of what Colton has looked like recently (taken a couple mo. ago). 4 teeth in 4 weeks, and no mobility/crawling yet will do that do a baby.

Hey Angie. I saw your blog on Hannah's website and your post cracked me up! I wish people would confuse my kid with being mixed with something...instead I just get asked if I am the babysitter! :)

Oh Ang. That is so funny! People are so looney. I mean what was she thinking? You could have just said very matter-of-factly: "well, actually, we've just adopted him from Peru, where he has been being raised by a herd of llamas in the Andes mountains" least it makes a good story to laugh at! He sure is cute, wherever you got him!

Sharon said...

That is absolutely hilarious. I can't imagine what nationality she thinks that he is.

I didn't hear about this! Hahaha. Too funny. I like how you said "white and white." Does redhead count as a nationality?
