Its funny, we were prepared for the stares of being so obviously foreign here in China.
Our son, however, was not.
He is mighty uncomfortable at the incredibly bold and rude stares he has been getting. Now, granted, he's a gorgeous kid, and thats not me being biased. Its just part of being a stranger in a strange land. But yesterday he got so uncomfortable with the stares that he told some people in McDonald's to stop staring at him.
That just made them look harder, so we left.
I feel bad that he doesn't understand all this quite yet. But what I am grateful for is that he now gets it when we tell him to stop staring at people.
So I guess we're making progress.
