Random Conversations

Andrew: Mommy, Miss Karen looked really pretty today.

Me: Really? Why was she so pretty today?

Andrew: Well, she was pretty when she took her top off.

Maybe I should spend some time at the school...

And at the dinner table Abby was discussing her friend "V".

Andrew: Oh yeah, I know her.

Abby: Really? What color is she?

Andrew: I don't know.

Abby: Then you don't know her. She's brown. What about "B"? Do you know her? What color is she?

Andrew: I don't know.

Abby: She's [points to her cheek], with a little bit of brown.

Less movies and more conversation. I like hearing the things they think about.

I'd love to hear the full story behind Miss Karen's top!
Love Abby's description of her friends ~ if only adults were also so non-concerned with race and saw skin tones as just a description...
Where was Adam? Cause I'm sure he would bring some fun random conversations to the table too!

Being color-blind is a good thing.
I like hearing what is on their minds. Children never cease to amaze me and teach me.
