I didn't know what else to call this thread, but yesterday was such a good day in the life of a multicultural kiddo, I thought we could all use a place to share neat stories!
We went to the playground yesterday, and there were 4 other children there: 2 sisters from Morocco and 20mo twins from China. The girls from Morocco spoke English, French, Arabic, and a little Chinese to boot, so we had several different languages floating around one single slide and it was the most normal, comfortable, fun environment. We all learned something new... my Spanish/English/ASL-speaking DD picked up her first Chinese words, repeating "Le Le Na Na!" to encourage the girls to come down the slide!
Plus, one girl said that my DD and I look like twins.
: She's much darker than I am, and I think she looks much more like her father, but it made me giddy inside that other people still see me in my DD as well.
We all know that multicultural families face some challenges, but I'd love to hear more happy stories, so bring 'em on!
