Baby Jesus Drives A Firetruck

LittleBird has an unnatural obsession with the baby Jesus that lives in our Advent calendar.

It started last year. She carried him around, reading to him. Feeding him. It was sweet, if a bit disconcerting.

This year she has started the trend again. For the past few days she has begged me to let her take him out of his pocket. This afternoon, I relented.

Baby Jesus played on the princess castle. He peed and pooped in the potty. He even slide by himself down the slide. Twice.

Apparently, he is a damn fine driver.


How can something so wrong be so damned funny?

Funny, I never thought of Jesus having to pee before.

Hey, you never know. If Jesus were among us today, he might be out there saving people with a fire truck!

Leave it to the kids to use their imaginations like that :-)

Peace - D

I guess Jesus has never really liked fire, huh?

K-Mom said...

LOL! I guess that book was right...EVERYBODY poops!

I'm pretty sure that you've secured a place in hell.

Patois said...

Yeah, what A Free Man said.

@Gypsy: LOL I think there's lots of things he did that we don't think to think about.

@RiverPoet: You are very right. Or maybe a stranger on the bus?

@Joe: Yeah, not all that much.

@K-Mom: Good point!

@A Free Man and Patois: It has long been understood by those who know me that I'm the navigator on the short bus to hell.

I am very relieved to hear that Jesus has proper bowel movements.

It must be from all the fiber Mary had to eat.

("What, hay AGAIN???")

That is hilarious.

Gah! That is the best!

Buddha gave me a "lesson" in the mall the other day. There was a display of different Nativity scenes - I pointed out "baby Jesus," and he replied, "Nuh uh! That's some baby God!"
