Apparently the joke was on me cause they were talking about a paper "dad" my son made as a gift for his...ummm...dad. As I looked at my son's drawing I started to laugh. First thing I noticed is that my son's "dad" was a bit pale. I mentioned that maybe we can color the skin...no go...they said no. Hmm. I'm guessing they're guessing my son's dad is light skin or something. The daycare never asked and I never offered the info.
Once back home I took a closer look at the drawing. Oddly enough so did my son. I thought it was funny that "daddy" seemed to have "asian" eyes and was painted yellow and black. I mentioned to my son that those are the colors of his parents. I don't think he believed me.
As we stood there gazing at "daddy" I started wondering. What will happen next year, and the year after that and the year after that. How will my son deal/feel/cope with making things for a father who's not in his life for "father's day"?!
