This is an excerpt from my blog post on ModernMom.com
My family loves celebrating “firsts.” First anything. First smile, first word, first birthday, first haircut - you get the idea. But on my daughter’s first day of school in her dual language (English/Korean) classroom, we got our first “are you her mother?” question.
As a biracial mom raising multicultural children faced with questions like this, I have to remind myself that most people are just curious. My first inclination is to answer, "who do you think I am?" But I don’t, because I have been trained.
