Yesterday we were sitting on the couch when J-Man pointed to E's bare back and told me he wishes he was the same color as E. I acknowledged they have different colors of skin and I talked about E's skin being the color of chocolate and J-Man's being the color of caramel.
Also yesterday, J-Man had a blue toy lizard. He threw it into the creek at the park and told me it would find it's blue mommy lizard. I threw out something about mommies and babies not having to be the same color.
Simple moments. Simple moments you hope you handle well because identities will really be made up of simple moments, won't they? Self image will be made up of simple moments.
