His and Hers

Yesterday at the grocery store a lady approached me and asked if my girls were sisters. When I said yes, she exclaimed, "I can't believe it! They don't look anything alike!" I just smiled and nodded politely. "Yes, they do have different features."

She went on and on about how she'd never seen two sisters look so different and look! one has blue eyes and other brown! And this one has blonde hair and that one brown! It's so strange!

I considered telling her they had different dads, just to shut her up, but was afraid Claire would repeat it--probably in Sunday School.

***for the record, they do have the same dad.

A woman working at Sams asked me if my son was adopted - I was so shocked I didn't really know what to say - I just said, "NO - he's mine!" But it bothered me for awhile and I couldn't believe that a complete stranger would say that in front of my son! I was so glad he was too young to understand and I'm glad to read your post and know that I'm not alone!
