Momma Hunt
Sorry for the delay in posts, I have been so sick, two trips to the doctor later and the only thing I can take is an inhaler (another plus of pregnancy, no good drugs) on the Wednesday Dylan said the most hysterical thing.

We were getting ready for daycare and talking about the big party that they were going to have and the grab bag gifts that they would be doing. Dylan looks up and says "Momma is it my birthday" to which I figured this is a true opportunity to discuss the true meaning of Christmas. I reply "No Dylan, at Christmas we celebrate baby jesus's birthday and give each other presents to celebrate" Dylan takes a moment to think about this and then looks up at my and asks "Mommy, will baby Jesus be bringing cupcakes"

Apparently, at daycare when it is your birthday you must bring cupcakes. So for the next 15 minutes I try to explain christmas, that the baby Jesus will not be at the party, and why. So I think that we are all set and then in the care he tell me that at snack time Baby Jesus will be sitting on the floor in the circle with juice and cupcakes.

Oh well, I tried. Next year I am just going to stick with Santa!

    How cute! Don't give up on telling the story of Christmas. He will get it eventually. But be prepared for questions that you think you know but when asked directly are hard to answer. My son keep asking me why Jesus had to die and how does that take away the bad things we do. It's kind of hard explaining in a way a 6yo can understand!

  2. That's funny! You should send that in to Reader's Digest, they have those funny stories in their issues - it would fit right in, especially a Christmas edition.

    I hope you are feeling better soon. I have been dealing with a bad bug lately too and can't imagine what it's like to be so sick and be pregnant. Get well soon!

  3. My oldest came home from playschool in December saying it was "Jesus' birthday" too. ;-)

    I read your comment on my blog and kudos to you for focusing on yourself and especially before the baby comes! Depression takes a toll on everyone in the family...I know from being a therapist and going through my own postpartum this fall. After seeing your therapist again, you'll have the strength you need to push away that stress. Trust me, I know EXACTLY what you're talking about.

    Happy 2010 to you!
