I learn something from my child (about) once a week. It reminds me of who I am and where I came from.
My son is 7 every year I ask him who he likes in class or who likes him. Girl wise. He has his crushes and so on but I want him to feel comfortable talking to me. So, anywho, he told me he like this young lady, I'm like ok, cool, what's her name and blah blah blah. He tried to explain what she looked like, however, in the end, he just said she was pretty, Mom.
I visit his class the next day on a scheduled visit. I am sitting there wondering what the girls looks like and if I know her.
I saw a couple girls, but I knew them, but this one girl, sat in the front she had albinism, when the pigments in your skin don't form correctly or something like that, if that's the correct term. We leave the class and he asked if I saw her, the girl he liked, he said, she sat in the front row, with long braids, it was the girl with the albinism. I WAS LIKE WOW! He didn't see a problem or that she was different, he liked her because he thought she was pretty! I asked did anybody else in his class like her, he said no! but I do! I was blown away! I had to give him a hug and tell him how awesome he was! I am so proud of him. I hope he stays that way and doesn't gets poisoned by society and what they call the perfect person. There is none and never will be...
