Monday, January 15, 2007from the mouths of babes
Xavier told me that he was playing "prison" with some of his rubber animals and and other toy characters. I noticed in the prison (a broken tupperware container) that he'd put in his plush St. Joseph and Baby Jesus-in-a-manger dolls in there too.
I casually ask: "Why is St. Joseph in prison?"
Xavier: "He's protecting Baby Jesus."
Me: "Why is Baby Jesus in there?"
Xavier replies with exasperation as if I should have known better: "He's praying for all the prisoners."
