Learning Colors – The Big & Small Daily Lessons of Parenthood
“Blue shirt, Momma.”
“J, purple shirt.”
Like Momma’s black hair, I say.
“My hair too.”
No, honey, your hair is brown.
I color a brown block on her sketch pad
And a black portion.
To show her the difference
Between these two colors and between our hair color too.
We learn colors and skim the surface of identity all in one lesson.
We are different, my love.
But you are mine
And I am yours.
We may not always look to the world
Like we belong to each other
But we do.
