Today Big Kid asked why we don't celebrate Kwanzaa.
Because we celebrate Christmas, I told him, we're Christians.
"I'd rather do Kwanzaa," he replied.
"What in the world are you talking about? Why would you want to celebrate Kwanzaa? What do you even know about Kwanzaa?"
"I dest know EVERYFING about it, dat's all. I like it better because it has colors like orange and red and green and black, which is way better dan dest red and green. Dat's why," he spat out, clearly annoyed with me.
Interestingly, he's on his second black girlfriend of the year. Kency is his newest girlfriend. He says because when he puts his head down she pats it and because they sit together at lunch. I tried to say it was just a friend who was a girl but he told me no, she is really his girlfriend. I preferred Ahsiya. Her dad's a doctor and she never gets on warning watch.
I guess Kency doesn't know Sophia sends him home with at least one note a week that says "I love you" and has hearts all over it.
Oh the drama.
