DS has started K and the first day I went to the classroom, the assignment was to color a stick to make it look like them. Well, the kid next to him was coloring it blue and I told DS he is coloring it blue and DS said I am using brown because I am tan. The today he brings home a pic of the family and DH and DS are brown and I am red. I am guessing maybe he was thinking of my sunburn a few weeks ago.

Carly, mama to DS C (5th grade), DD Miss M (07/09, fostered 1/10, adopted 08/10), and Little Miss C (11/10, fostered 01/11, adopted 11/12). Foster Son, Mr. A, age 11 placed 10/13.
My angel babies , ~01/08~ (twins), ~09/08~, and ~01/09~.

my son last spring went through a phase where he was talking a lot about what color everybody (in the family!) is. (there's a family pic in my sig)

He was 'brown', I was "white", daddy was "black" and for some unknown reason he insisted that "Sophie is pink."

lovin DH since 1/04, best mom for my 3 boys 10/04, 11/08, 11/10 one girlie (1/07), one 13 wk (10/13) and 5/15 just your average multigenerational living family!!

That's cute. DS is in kdg too, and we just read Black is Brown is Tan for the first time a few weeks ago. He really enjoyed it, because, I quote, "The kids look like me and DD!" but he kept saying it was wrong, because the mommy should be like me (white) and the daddy like our daddy (black) so "They drew the pictures wrong, Mommy." That's the first time he's really said anything like that, other than asking if I was white after a birthday party where he overhead some other moms talking about me.
