The Nativity Story

The other night, we realized that we couldn't hear Gracie which usually translates into water on the bathroom floor or markers being used on an inappropriate surface. I called her name to see where she was, only to discover that she was sitting right behind me at the counter. (Let's not even get started on the fact that I was too lazy to turn around in my comfy chair to do a visual sweep of the living area before I called out for her)

I asked her what she was doing (still not turning around to see for myself), and she replied:

"Playing with God."

That got me turned around in my chair pretty quickly! I turned to see her quietly playing with the childrens Nativity that I have out for them. After I finished laughing (quietly) into my pillow, I realized that she understood that Jesus is God, and that just made my Christmas.

I feel ya! Luckily my son can't reach the water yet... and he can't get into the bathroom to find the tub! He can however mash all of the buttons on the TV and DVD player and open the dishwasher (which he loves to do just as I have started it)
Very sweet story! You should be proud!

That is so cute! Hopefully she'll play with God for many years to come ;-)
