"I have two biracial children and a white daughter (ghost white). My daughter refuses to be white, she calls herself light tan. She is always saying things like 'mom you are so white not like the rest of us', or 'mom you are so white I thought you were a ghost', or my personal fav: 'Mom I can see you in the dark'..... I really don't know how to tell her that she is white like me!"

“I sometimes feel it is my duty as a citizen of this great country to text my husband before he gets home from work: 'Enter with caution. It’s been one of those days.'” -- Real Mom
