Sometimes you just have to smack 'em with the truth...
"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!"
Hey, kettle. You're white... LOL
There are moments of pride... in one's momself...
"You're so pretty. I'm glad I made you." -- Real Mom
Of course she takes after you...
Well this is less-than-comfortable...
"Get your face out of my butt!" -- Real Mom
Yeah... we got nothin' here...
Sometimes you need to channel your inner Buddha...
"Is this going to matter to me in a year?" -- Real Mom

Kids do some amazing things, don't they?

"The more you ask the longer you wait. " -- Real Mom
Art is subjective. What you think you see, someone else doesn't. Right?
"My daughter's teacher from Boys and Girls Club called us and said she drew something they were concerned about. When I asked my daughter what it was she shrugged and said a roller coaster. It was very clearly a penis!" -- Real Mom
True confession: we think the Amazon "smile" is really an Amazon "wang". Which would also bring a smile, no?
Some things from childhood stick with you forever...
"My son when he was little liked to run down the hall naked screaming 'wiener, wiener, wiener!' He is now 19 and I caught him doing this the other day!"
-- Real Mom
Maybe he'll one day drive the Wienermobile...
"Lippy" or "mouthy" is just a phase, right?
"I am not going to survive her attitude!" -- Real Mom
We're pretty sure she got that 'tude from her father, right? #BlameDad
