Black and White Makes Orange


My toddler has been the very embodiment of a Todzilla lately. Oh these threenage years! It’s been a test of my patience for sure, but when I’m not pulling my hair out or practicing breathing techniques, this little girl keeps me laughing! Yesterday’s conversation was no exception. 😄

Alexandra: Mommy, I see that white man. That’s my daddy!

Me: Yep, that’s right. What color am I sweetie?

Alex: Umm, mama’s black. 

Me: You’ve got it! Tell me, what color are you?

Alex: Uhhhhhhh, hold on, let me check. She runs to the full-length mirror hanging in the hallway to examine herself. Mommy! Daddy! I’M ORANGE!!! 😂😂😃

Out of the mouth of babes…she is too much!! 😉

Mommyhood is filled with highs and lows, but the highs make it all worth it! What’s the funniest thing your child has said or done lately?

  1. Lol my kids say daddy is brown! Lol My oldest would think anyone Asian was me and anyone black was daddy when she was a toddler! Lol

    1. That’s too funny! We saw a few older caucasian women while running errands yesterday and my 3yo kept pointing and saying it was her Grandma…who lives in California. Lol. Lol! 😉

  2. LOL that’s happened as well. Our youngest says, “Grandma!” whenever she sees an older black woman! LOL
