A mom named Brandi Benner told her little girl, Sophia, she could have a new doll if she spent the entire month pooping on the potty. This is a difficult task, but the girl succeeded, so she really deserved whatever doll she wanted from Target.

Here's where it gets interesting. The cashier was completely baffled to see the little white girl holding her doll of choice at the register.

Was it a birthday gift for a friend? No? Well, was she really sure she wanted it?

Nick and I told Sophia that after 1 whole month of going poop on the potty, she could pick out a special prize at Target. She, of course, picked a new doll. The obsession is real. While we were checking out, the cashier asked Sophia if she was going to a birthday party. We both gave her a blank stare. She then pointed to the doll and asked Sophia if she picked her out for a friend. Sophia continued to stare blankly and I let the cashier know that she was a prize for Sophia being fully potty trained. The woman gave me a puzzled look and turned to Sophia and asked, "Are you sure this is the doll you want, honey?" Sophia finally found her voice and said, "Yes, please!" The cashier replied, "But she doesn't look like you. We have lots of other dolls that look more like you." I immediately became angry, but before I could say anything, Sophia responded with, "Yes, she does. She's a doctor like I'm a doctor. And I'm a pretty girl and she's a pretty girl. See her pretty hair? And see her stethoscope?" Thankfully the cashier decided to drop the issue and just answer, "Oh, that's nice." This experience just confirmed my belief that we aren't born with the idea that color matters. Skin comes in different colors just like hair and eyes and every shade is beautiful.#itswhatsontheinsidethatcounts #allskinisbeautiful#teachlove #teachdiversity#thenextgenerationiswatching

"But she doesn't look like you," said the overstepping cashier. "We have lots of other dolls that look more like you."

As Sophia's mom was preparing to flip out, Sophia dropped the perfect response: "Yes, she does. She's a doctor like I'm a doctor. And I'm a pretty girl and she's a pretty girl. See her pretty hair? And see her stethoscope?"

Sophia is amazing, and she definitely just earned one hundred more toys. As her mom concluded, the "experience just confirmed my belief that we aren't born with the idea that color matters. Skin comes in different colors just like hair and eyes and every shade is beautiful."
