Last night was the first of our oldest son’s three performances with our church’s children’s choir. Near the end of the performance, there is a reenactment of Jesus’ nativity–Mary, Joseph, Jesus, two angels, some shepherds, and even wise men.
Q.-Age-Three was enchanted by the whole thing–I mean, completely in awe. She kept asking when we could see the angels again, and was thrilled to hear we are going back tonight.
In the midst of all of this, I realized the sweetest thing ever.
She thought it was real.
Not the whole thing; just the nativity scene.
She talked about it enough that it finally dawned on me she completely thought she had seen real angels. No wonder she was so excited!
She took it well when I explained that those were children dressed up as angels and Joseph and Mary and the rest, and is still looking forward to this evening.
