Addi knows her colors. She will name them and also let me know what outfits she likes, based on color. Her favorite (this week, anyway) is PINK.
However, I have noticed lately that Addi is colorblind. And it's this kind of colorblindness I hope she never ever gets over.
A while back, Addi and I headed to Walmart to pick up a few things. Once inside we ran into a friend of mine and we stopped to chat. Addi looked over and yelled, "There's Daddy!" and started waving like crazy towards the center of the store.
I looked that way, and saw who she was waving at. It was a man... approximately the same age as Jay. He was also heavy-set like Jay and was wearing glasses.
You could see a resemblance. Except for one major difference. This man was African American.
And Addi didn't even notice the first thing many people would see. To her, he was just a guy who looked like Daddy because of his glasses and size.
Food for thought......
