I didn't really care too much about ancestry before, especially since I'm 100% Mexican (with some of your usual Spanish/Aztec situation) but it hit me on St. Patrick's Day this year as my child was dancing to The Chieftains, that I was having an Irish baby. Well, part of her anyway. Now instead of glazing over stories of Matt's ancestry, now I'm very interested in learning that he has family that was born in Cork, Rochester, NY, and Germany. I wanna know more about all these cultures and people my daughter will be born into.
All of these long gone people are a little part of my daughter now. Ain't that something?
And this weekend I get to hang with a bunch of them. Have a great weekend everybody!
