Why white people go to the beach
Conversation between my 4 year old son and myself this morning.
"Mom, do you know what I want for breakfast?" Cameron asked grinning, as if it was some secret that every morning this week he would ask me for the same thing.
"I know what you want....waffles," I responded playing along with his game.
"Hey!" he responded quite surprised. "How did you know that? Because you know everything, like daddy?"
"No, I don't know everything, and neither does your daddy."
"Yes he does, because he's dark,"Cameron responded quite matter-of-factly.
"What?" I ask, thinking I heard him wrong.
"If you're dark, you know everything."
"What are you talking about?" I continued, still not quite believeing what he said.
"You know, like if your skin is dark, like daddy's, you know everything."
"Oh, really? And who told you that?" I inquired, knowing the answer.
"Daddy," he responded with a grin.
(When confronted with this, my husband absolutely denies it. Claims he has told that he knows everything, but not because his skin is dark).
If Cameron's logic rings true, I better make my way to the tanning bed!!!
