Zeke had befriended a little boy at the park a few days ago and this is the conversation with me that followed:
Me: "Hey buddy, did you find a friend?"
Zeke: "Why do some people put lotion in their hair?"
Me: quickly thinking of a response..."Well, God made black people with a different kind of hair. Kind of like how daddy puts gel in his hair, some black people put lotion in there hair."
Zeke: really thinking now..."How come I can't touch it?"
Me: "What? Did you actually ask him if you could touch his hair?"
Zeke: shrugging his shoulders and staring into outer space pondering who knows what..."yeah, but he said I couldn't"
Note To Self: remind the kids that we need to go potty, put on shoes and refrain from asking other kids to touch their hair at the park, before leaving for the park.
