Sunday School

Our neighbors have a nativity scene set up in their front yard. This made Annie very curious.
"Mommy? Who is that?" she asks.
I explain that it is Baby Jesus, and that Christmas Day is actually Jesus' birthday.
"Is he having a Pump It Up Party? Am I invited? Will there be cake?" she asks.

Later that day, we pass a local church that has a huge statue of Christ in front.

"Mommy? Who is that?" Annie asks again.
I explain that Baby Jesus grew into a man, and that this statue is of Him.

"Is Jesus a big boy now?" Annie asks.
"Yes." I reply.
"Does Jesus wear big kid underwear like me?" Annie asks.
"Yes." I reply.
"How old is Jesus?" Annie asks.
"He's very, very old." I answer.
"Oh, like Daddy." Annie says.
