That Explains It...

Have you ever wondered why Avery has blonde hair and blue eyes, yet no one else in the family does? Well guess who came out of the womb after him:

Yup, it's Baby Hitler in footy PJs.

But really, is it just me... Or is it rude to ask someone if their son is really theirs? Practically every time I go anywhere with all 3 kids, someone asks if they're all 3 mine, or if they all have the same father (yes, really), or how did Avery get that hair? Sometimes people try to be sneaky and just say, "Look at that hair!" I know that's code for "your kids look nothing alike."

But by far, my all-time favorite rude question asked about Avery's hair is this: "What color hair does your mailman have?" Am I the only one who sees a problem with this question - even as a joke?

How irritating for you! I can't believe people have the nerve to comment such things. But my mom went through the same thing with me and my brothers. And to this day we look nothing alike and all have the same mom and dad. She still gets rude comments like that.

LOL! That made me laugh! Thanks! I needed it! I'm so relieved to know that I'm not the only one! I can see the resemblance of Avery and Daniel so clearly especially when Daniel is clean shaven. But how stupid... about the postman! It annoys me when people ask me if I adopted my kids, are they my foster kids, do they all have the same father, how long did I have my kids, what country did I get them from... you name it... I've been asked all that!

what's wrong with your mailman? Is he not good enough for you?
