P "We three are white"
Me (interjecting) "What about daddy?"
P "Daddy is brown"
Me "Well, if mummy is white and daddy is brown, what does that make you?"
P "I'm white"
Me "I think you are light brown"
P "No, I'm not brown"
Me "Maybe you are a little bit brown and a little bit white"
P "You are joking me mum"
Me "No, you are a mix of mum and dad"
P "But what does that make?"
Me "That makes for two beautiful little girls"
P "Stop joking me mum!"
(I must note that her favourite teacher is "brown", so I'm not quite sure why she so clearly defines herself as white??)
