My boys are biological siblings
And this shouldn't matter. It doesn't matter, except people sometimes assume they are not because they look so different from each other.
- •This is them.They are both pretty damn adorable, in my humble opinion😍
- •My husband is Hispanic. And I'm white.
- •Gabriel, my oldest is the spitting image of his daddy.He's really into Superman poses right now.
- •Dylan, the baby, is blond haired and fair skinned.He's really into whatever his brother's doing.
- •I hate it when people mention how different they look from each other.Fun fact: when my husband's father met Dylan for the first time, he made a "joke" that he wasn't my husband's child. 😡
- •Because I hear the question in their comments"They both belong to us", I want to scream! "Genetics! It's pretty amazing what combinations come up, with every new life! Open a science book!"
- •And I worry that my kids will mind the questions.They don't notice yet, but they will one day.
- •Because the thing is, even if they weren't biological brothers, they'd still be brothers. That's all that matters. And it isn't anyone's business anyway.And I hate that I sometimes feel like I should have to have a reason, they look so different.
- •And I wonder about how they will be treated.One son is obviously Hispanic and my youngest isn't obviously Hispanic. Will people treat them differently?
- •I mean, I'm white. I've never been discriminated against because of the color of my skin.Will one of my sons face this and one won't?
- •But mostly I worry about how they will see themselves and each other.Will they have issues with their identities? Will Dylan mind that he is lighter than both his brother and father?
- •Anyway, they are both perfect and are both exactly how they should be.And that's what really matters.
- •They are brothersObviously. 💙💙
