Reason for the season

Since Mary Clare is just now getting Christmas and the idea of Santa Claus, I have refrained from throwing out a lot of information about Jesus. You know, the whole reason for the season. 

Admittedly, my priorities aren't in order, but since she's inundated with far more images of Santa than Jesus, I took the easy way out and led with the big jolly guy. 

This is not to say that we're not talking about Jesus, Mary and Joseph over at Casa TB. Mary Clare has free reign with both the Fisher Price and Fontanini nativity sets, and we make it a point to talk about all of the figures, who they are and what they are doing. Baby steps. 

And so it was a baby step I took last week when, after talking about her birthday (yet again) on the way to school, I told Mary Clare, "You know, baby Jesus' birthday is the same day as yours. His birthday is on Christmas, too." She was quiet for a moment and then said, "Is he going to be three, too?"


  1. This is awesome. Can't wait to tell that story to my mom and sister.

  2. Jesus probably never forgets MC's birthday. The rest of us aren't so lucky.
