Where does he get that red hair?

Playing in Kayleigh's ball pit at her house!

I often get asked where Parker's red hair comes from! As you all know Mike and I = have brown hair. However, my Grandma Clark, and my dad's 2 sisters all had/have red hair! Mike's mom and grandma also have/ had strawberry blond hair! So, Parker got the recessive gene from both of us! It is funny to go out places with him and make people wonder! Somehow it is a common phrase if a couple doesn't have red hair and their child does, then the baby must be the "mailman's kid!"

LOL But our mail person is a lady!

The day he was born the nurses started joking about his hair-till they heard about the family!

Now that I have cleared that all up -it goes on about my story of the week!

I was in the garage playing with Parker & Kayleigh and Carol, our mail lady brought me up a package. (It was my new cell phone! YEAH!)

She was admiring how much Parker had grown. She said she remembered the day he was born!

I told her I had to clear up one thing with her:

The day we were coming home with Parker, my father-in-law was waiting for us in the garage. Carol (Our mail-lady) was delivering the mail and saw the blue bow on the mailbox. She shouted up "CONGRATULATIONS" to my Father-in-law said-"THANKS!"

Then she asked the name!

My F.I.L went blank. He forgot Parker's name and shouted out "DANIEL!"

So for 1 year she thought Parker was a "Daniel!"

I officially introduced Parker and cleared it up. She laughed and remembered it well. She got a funnier laugh when all say our baby is the mail-man's baby!

Nope, he is really ours!!!

We love our little red-head.
