"But brown people speak Spanish"

This is what my oldest dd said in the store yesterday. She kept asking me if family next to us was speaking Spanish. I couldn't really hear the words, so I said I didn't know. That's when she (very loudly) informed me.. I got the stink eye from mom..
DD1 is half Mexican. I don't know if being around biodads family is what gave her that thought.
I have told this child countless times that there are many languages. Ugh.

Kids say things based on what they observe. It's typically purely innocent. If people can't get over it, that's their problem. Sure, we should teach them, but you can't fault a kid for being innocent.

Because of my husband's skin complexion, he gets mistaken as spanish speaking ALL the time. And, people get frustrated when he doesn't respond to them.   

Kids are kids, it happens.

DS once very loudly informed me that there were a lot of brown people in the store. I wanted to crawl under a rock and die.

He was obsessed with coloring at the time and always wanted the people he drew to be the right color. For example, when he drew me he needed the peach crayon.

I wanted to explain WHY he said what he did, but I figured that would be even more awkward, lol.
