IF YOU'RE THINKIN' ABOUT MY BABY, IT DON'T MATTER IF YOU'RE BLACK OR WHITE

My sister is pregnant with her first baby. Yesterday was her 9 week appointment. Here is her actual conversation with the doctor as she was preparing to do the ultrasound -

Sister: Will the baby be black or white?

Doctor: Hmmm, that is an interesting question. I guess it is like that Michael Jackson song.

Sister (too quiet for the doctor to hear): I meant on the screen.

In the doctor's defense, some people do say that the back of my brother-in-law's head looks the same as President Obama's. You be the judge.

This is the back of my brother-in-law's head -


This is the back of President Obama's head... or is it my brother-in-law?


I think I will watch This Is It tonight in honor of the pregnancy.

  1. I have a friend who is Puerto Rican, and her husband is black. She said when her daughter, now 17, was born, her skin was blue. That was her first clue that her daughter was going to be really black! And she is. You'd never know she had anything but totally black parents. (But I also heard a thing on NPR that said that the VAST majority of black people in America have at least 40% white genetics.) You never know how the combo will turn out--and Kaci's baby is going to be GORGEOUS, no matter what the skin tone!

  2. that's so funny! Yeah the back of his neck kinda does look like Obama's. Let's hope that's all that is similar, for his own sake! heh heh

  3. I'm surprised you didn't report more of what happened during that visit, but it really wasn't funny. I hope she gets a different doctor. I don't have a good feeling about this one at all. Sometimes it's hard being a grandma.

  5. Why do you think she is talking about me? That's totally the back of Vak's head.

  6. Yay, how exciting! Can't wait to hear how everything goes! Kaci is so awesome! They are the cutest couple! If you're reading this Kaci, I have very fond memories of you and Cari and all the others hanging out! Fun.
    Love,

  7. You mean it's Kaci who is pregnant???? I totally thought it was Vak's head. So now that that is totally cleared up... congrats Kaci. :-)

  8. Ok so this is really embarrassing... I saw, "my sister" and my mind went immediately to Kaci. (Sorry, Kelley-- I know you should have equal time in my former Seminary Teacher mind...) Since I have never met Vak, and only seen Salesi a couple of times, I really had no idea whose back-of-the-head it was...

    So sorry, Kaci, if I accidentally started a rumor about you. I could only think about beautiful babies! (This is why I post a comment only about once per year! Potential for embarrassment--boo!)

    And congratulations, Kelley, assuming it's you!

  9. Gayle -

    Don't feel bad - it IS Kaci. So, no rumors started, maybe I should have been more clear about who it was, but it seemed like everyone figured it out anyway. :)
