Who's your baby daddy/mama?

James is a very proud daddy and loves showing his co-workers and patients pictures of his baby boy. Of course with James' blue eyes, sandy hair and Snow White skin tone, he always gets asked -- in a polite way -- what River has in him. Folks guess Indian a lot.

The funniest exchange happened Friday when James showed a picture of River to one of his co-workers who is a black lady.

Co-Worker:(leaning in close) Let me ask you something.

James: Ok.

Co-Worker: Is your wife black?

James: Yes.

Co-Worker: Good, because i can tell when a baby is black and that baby is black. I was gonna tell you that if your wife isn't black, that baby's daddy is!

James has decided that if he is asked that question again he's going to say that his wife is a pale, redheaded lady. I told him to throw in that her best friend since childhood is a big black dude that hangs around all the time!

Oh my goodness, that is the CUTEST baby boy (next to my own 2). He is so sweet!

Tell him next time someone says something to say "I went on Maury Povich and got the test back and he IS my son".

I like that his coworker talks about identifying baby races like she's an investigator for Maury.
