So im new here, my names heather. I have two sons, ethan almost 5 and justin almost 1. They have different dads, both mexican. However apparently my genes are dominant. Both of my sons look white. My oldest has blonde hair but light brown eyes and my youngest has light brown hair and green eyes. I know there was a similar thread like this but my questions arent so much as who out there had this occur but more along the lines of has this caused issues for you or your children? I notice that when i go to functions with my boyfriend (2nd baby daddy) whos taken on the father role for my oldest, that the hispanic kids dont treat them the same. Even the adults, sometimes i have to repeat myself that they are both mixed with mexican, like they dont believe me. Especially with my oldest. It can get annoying trying to prove their heritage. I had the same issues when i was married to my ex husband as i do with my current bf, i hear people make jokes that they dont belong to their fathers like i had some secret white guy on the side. Have you guys had to deal with this much?
