I really thought that I would get asked "the question" at least once while I was traveling cross-country with Vivian, without her Chinese daddy along. I was asked "is she Asian?" at one point in time, but that was as close to "the question' as I got.
But I did get a ton of "the look". It makes me laugh- so much so that I'm dying to make a shirt that reads "yes, she's my biological child." I get it fairly often, but on this past trip it was so very obvious some times. Vivian and I would be walking through the airport or boarding the plane and people would see her and smile. Then they'd look up at me, and a look of confusion would cross the person's face. Then he/she would look back at Vivian and smile again.
On a (somewhat) related topic, after we got home yesterday and did a load of laundry and I showered and things like that, we went out for lunch. And as we walked, we got two compliments on how cute/handsome Ethan was, but none on Vivian. After a while, I realized that I had a hairbow for her in my pocket, and I put in it her hair. And (I am NOT exaggerating here), 10 seconds later someone said "oh, did you see that cute baby sitting over there?" I almost laughed out loud at the timing. So funny!
Okay, I think I've stalled long enough so that Vivian is asleep and will let me go to sleep as well :) Have a great Friday, everyone!
