from 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."
