White or Brown?

I just took my kids Christmas shopping, trying to get some things done early before the baby comes. Well, we got all the presents we needed for all the cousins names that we drew and decided to look at things the boys might want to put on their lists. We also looked at dolls for their new sister. Tate was especially interested in picking out a dolly for his new little sister. While checking out the dolls he asked me, "Mom are we going to get a white baby or a brown baby?" I assured him that it was positively a "white" baby, but he doesn't agree, he figures it is just a likely a "brown" baby and has insisted that we will have to wait and see. How do I explain that one?

so funny! I'm sure he'll learn about genetics one day in biology class!

More importantly, how will you explain to Ryan when the baby does come out brown?

I'm sure a couple of years in Guatemala might affect Ryan's dna a bit. Love your little boys.

I thought the same thing Mike, he was a little concerned with this comment given that my identity was stolen to view Asian porn... but rest assured the baby will look like Ryan... or me....

That's such a cute question--you'll just have to tell him that his little sister will look a lot like her mommy and daddy--or you can explain DNA... :)
