One for the books

Grandma and Grandpa gave the kids each $5 for Halloween. We were at Target today looking at possibilities. Callie was looking at baby dolls. Dave handed her one to look at. Typical Callie is that one baby is not enough. So the following dialogue occured:

Callie: Ugh...baby....baby.....baby!!!
Noah: Callie wants another baby
Callie: baby...Baby...BABY
(Dave handing her another baby)
Noah: No, Callie wants the "chocolate" one!

All we could do is laugh since we haven't really ever talked much about different races. Needless to say this was not a quiet statement but rather exclaimed in the middle of the toy department.

God bless him.

I LOVE your stories! I can't wait to have stories of my own someday. Until then, I'll live vicariously through you. :)

lol ! the kids have a 'gods blessings' book, that is filled with different kids and pictures, and a few weeks ago (before we went to visit our biracial family members) Tatum came running out with 'chocolate babeeeee' choco babee...".. Andrew nipped that in the bud QUICk, thinking that she had heard this from Brig who had heard it from school. in reality, I think SHE was the one that came up with it. she still says it every time and grins big. but they didn't make one word about a real life chocolate grandpa, uncle, or tons of chocolate cousins!! LOL ( and i say that with the voice of kid innocence)
