On the day we were leaving the hospital (Toronto, Ontario), my husband left me to install the Baby Yoda Star Wars T-Shirt. A cleaning lady wandered from the hall into my room. She peeked over and saw my baby and looked at me. She looked at my baby then looked at me again. “Beautiful baby“, she said. I responded “thank you “ while trying to figure out how to politely ask her to leave. She had no cleaning supplies or tools with her. Her hands were swinging. It seems she was just bored. Then she said, “Is your husband white?” I automatically bristled and gave her a clipped “No”. Then she asked with an accusing tone, “then… how come your baby is White?“ I could not believe the audacity of this woman!

Best Baby Yoda Star Wars T-Shirt
Her question and tone implied I had an affair with Baby Yoda Star Wars T-Shirt.. I’m Black and so is my husband. To be transparent, my hormones were going, I was in pain from my csection and was not in the mood. But… I chose to educate rather than excoriate her. A newborn has very thin skin and when they are born their skin can have a pale pinkish look from the blood vessels just beneath it. My baby’s skin will darken. I explained this. She gave me a noncommittal “hmpf” and left the room. Indeed, how rude! I’ve attached a picture of our baby on the second day she was born and a picture with her and my hubby when she was 3 months.
