Today I had to pick up Elijah early for a dentist appt. While waiting for him to come from music, I went to his class to get his backpack. I was talking to his teacher when she told me of a conversation the two of them had. While talking about how Johnny Appleseed befriended the Indians, Elijah had something to tell her it goes a little something like this:

"Mrs. Edmonson, I was going to be Indian but somehow I just came out like this," pointing to himself.

Mrs. Edmonson questions, "What's this?

Elijah replies with, "just brown, you see although I am brown like an Indian I am not in fact Indian just a brown boy."

We laughed then in the car on our way to the dentist Elijah says, "Oh Mom now I remember what I was trying to tell Mrs. Mom is white and my Dad is black so that makes me a muchaco!" I thought I was going to choke from laughing so hard and he still seriously says, "What's so funny about me being muchaco?" I said, "Son you are MULATTO not muchaco. A muchaco is what Mommy orders from Taco Bueno!" He still didn't see the humor! I do and I still laugh just thinking about it! I've been trying to teach Elijah the politically correct name for his race, mulatto, but I guess I am not too good at it since he thinks he is a muchaco!
