Here’s my confession, I’m completely obsessed with looking at pictures of biracial babies. If I find a blogger that has half Asian kids I will dig through her archives to find pictures of her kids at various ages.
I guess I want proof that my children have a chance of looking at least a little bit like me. I also love to see other families that look like ours.
I’m self concious about looking like an outsider. To me…the girls look way Asian. Even if you take their very “white” looking hair and other various features…the eyes have it. That slight tilt to the corners, the folds that dip in differently from mine…it tells the world that they’re indeed mixed.
Please don’t take this the wrong way. Obviously I think the Asian people, men specifically, are attractive. I did choose to date and have children with one heh! I’m just sensitive that people think they look like “all Peter” rather than a “good mix”.
I guess it’s just a bit of motherly pride as I want people to make the connection when they see us together. I want to show off my beautiful baby girl. I want to tell strangers that I carried her in my womb for nine months and have the varicose veins to prove it. But I don’t. Instead, I casually mention in the conversation that my husband is Caucasian and hope that they make the connection. ~ Theresa on Off Beat Mama
To keep it fair, here’s a few pictures of my mixed kiddies!
