Scenes from Maternity Leave – Week 5
December 7th, 2011

Last year IEP was given this terrific children’s nativity set.  At two years old he was still a bit too young to have any understanding of what it meant.  This year, as a three-year-old, he is beginning to learn about the Christmas story.

After seeing how he had arranged them I asked what the kings were doing.  He plainly told me that they were waiting for their turn to see Jesus.  (I think Santa-visiting protocol was probably an influencer here.)

Then when I asked why the animals were off by themselves on the windowsill he told me, “Barn all full.  Animals going for a walk.”  … Makes sense to me!

    We still use our Little People Nativity set – I love that thing. It totally keeps Baby Jesus in our fancier creche safe from swiping! One year (before we owned the Little People Nativity) Baby Jesus went missing for 4 days.

    Too cute! I laughed out loud. “Barn full”
