After one of the many dance recitals.
So the other day I was off work early and was able to pick our daughter up from dance. Normally my schedule only allows me to pick up once a week and my husband covers the rest. However, this particular night I was able to pick her up from the class that she asst. teaches. I love being able to see this class because it wasn't that long ago that Tatiana was one of the little dancers...now she is helping to teach them! Crazy! All you Mom's out there...and Dad's too, you get it, right? It's heart warming and freaky at the same time. How do they grow up so fast!? Anywho, back to the story...after the class was over, and my heart was all warm and gushy, we were walking out to the car and two of little dancers that Tat teaches were sitting on the curb while their Moms talked. One little girl just so happened to be Black and the other little girl was Hispanic. As we were walking by, the little girl who is black said, "Miss Tatiana, is that your Mom?" Tat said, "Yes." The little girl said, "Ohhhh, I like her!" Right after she said that, the little girl who is Hispanic said, "Blanca!" Tatiana and I just cracked up!!! First of all, the fact that they were so surprised that I was blanca (white) was hilarious in itself, but the fact that they were excited about it was even funnier! It still blows my mind, that people, whether little or big, are so shocked that I am Tatiana's Mom. I am here to tell you, that YES, I am her Mom! :)
