What Will We Tell The Kids?

Tiny Princess asked if there was such a day as "Kite Day". I told her there probably was, seeing as how they had a whole month set aside just for the history of people with dark skin. "I have dark skin!" piped up my lovely little half-Filipino porcelain doll, whose skin is the color of gingerbread. Unfortunately, I had to explain to her that the month was only for the history of people whose skin was darker than hers, and then only for some of them.

"That's not fair!" she said.

No kidding.
