I was walking past a preschool in my neighborhood. An older woman was walking behind me. A young man who works at the preschool had two toddlers in hand.
Relevant information: The toddlers were very dark skinned. The woman behind me was somewhat lighter than they were. I am as white as white can be...I do have a tan from being outside, but still.
Toddler 1, upon seeing me: That's my mommy!
Toddler 2: No, that's MY mommy!
1: NO, that's MY mommy!
2: NOOOO, that's MY mommy!
They pass me. From behind me, I hear:
1: That's not my mommy.
2: No, that's not MY mommy!
Then they see the woman behind me....
1: That's my mommy!
2: No, that's MY mommy!
Neither she nor I were, in fact, either of these children's mommies. But they were oh so very cute.
