My Kid’s Not Racist

My American Girl

Well, It happened.

Our beautiful girl has been home for 21 months. She’s almost 3 1/2 years old. And this beautiful, friendly, little girl has been told that she’s not liked because she’s black. And because she’s African, and nobody likes Ethiopia either.

By someone close to us.

I am so pissed. I am disappointed. I am sad.

This person is almost 11 yrs old, is the child of someone close to us, & is a neighbor.

Fortunately Jasmine was there. She yelled at him, she took Addis away, & she called & left a message on the parent’s phone. Not sure what I should do from here.

The thing is, I knew that this would happen, sooner or later. But by a friend?? And at THREE years old?? WTF?????

Recently Addis has been asking to use my phone camera. As I was going through the dozens of pics of a shoe on my camera, I found it harder & harder to delete them. It is cute to see her view of the world! Here are a few:

Is this pic of the water or the friend? I’m not quite sure, but this pic is #4 of a series of 18.

This might have been a good shot…we’ll never know. My guess is she was holding the phone backwards!

Another friendThere are also at least 4 dozen pics in the series we’ll call “Addis’ legs/feet while buckled up”.MommyI suspect I will be adding more of her pics in the future. Geesh, everything this girl does makes me smile!
