Here's your chance...
While I am playing the role of short order cook, and piecing together different leftovers for everyone's lunch this is the conversation that comes at me from the kitchen barstools....
Jolie....MOM, I want this and that and this and that for Christmas...I sure hope nobody gets my toys. (meaning, she sure hopes no one gets the items she showed me last time at Marshalls...She already knows that if you don't get it when you see it at marshalls it's probably not gonna be there...and she knows I didn't get it...)
Shek....Jolie do you know what Christmas is really about?
Mom (that's me...thinks quickly to myself...YES you do..we go over this constantly. We know Jesus is in this house?...but at the mere thought that someone doesn't or has forgotten ....we will now have a reminder as mom will go into sermon review mode and remind everyone who Jesus is and when his birthday is and will use props if necessary)
MOM... Karlie bring me that Mary and Joseph Baby Jesus statue on the shelf...
Shek ...I will do it..
(we all show Jolie, Jesus, Mary and Joseph..)
Jolie: Why did he die on the Cross?
Jolie: What did he say when he died on the Cross?
Jolie: What did Mary say when He died on the cross?
Shek tries to interject some answers in between her barrage of the Why and what questions that her age is so eager to ask incessantly.
Shek: He died on the cross for your sins. He had to be born so that he could die for our sins....
Mom: Do you know what sin is?
Mom: You know when you tell a lie, or hit your siblings, or sass and do bad things...that's sin.
Shek: YEAH, and Jesus had to die for all the bad stuff. (and he get's the next prop, the cross made out of nails...
Jolie: How did they put him on the cross?
Shek: With nails...like these and shows her the cross he grabbed off the shelf the one made out of spikes.
Jolie: What does it say on the tomb?
Mom: He's not in the tomb anymore
Shek: He rose on the third day.
Jolie: What did the angel say to him? Did the angel say He will wake up in 2 mins?
MOM ( I am wondering where did she come up with that?)
MOM: Now, do you know who's birthday it is at Christmas?
Jolie: It's Jesus' birthday. What did he say on the cross?
Mom: He said Father forgive them because they don't know what they are doing.
Jolie: What's his middle name?
Mom: I don't know maybe Christ.
Shek: No, it's Son of GOD.
and the questions/ conversations continue.
So, what did you talk about at lunch?
