Don’t worry honey, he’ll brown up.

Jen,
Bowie, MD.

My husband (African American) and I (Caucasian) took our son to his one month doctor appointment. The nurse asked us if he was Caucasian or non-white and wanted me to make a decision so she could check a box. When I asked for other options like a biracial or two or more races, she said there were none. I said well at the moment, he looks white and she said don’t worry honey, he’ll brown up. She checked non-white.
