At Leif's school they were reenacting the nativity. I only know this as it popped out at me on his monthly newsletter. Since we are hoping to instill a little bit more about Christmas into this holiday than just Santa, I was anxious for this to happen and talk about it with Leif.
Finally the nativity day came.
NM: "Leif what were you in the nativity today?"
Leif: "A bumble bee."
NM: "Are you sure? I didn't know there was a bumble bee in the nativity."
Leif: "Yes, and the baby layed in the grass and the bumble bee buzzed around. BUZZZZZ"
NM: (Thinking...) "Were you the baby Jesus?"
Leif: "No mommy, the baby layed in the grass and I was a bumble bee. BUZZZZZ..."
Ok, fine. So he was a bumble bee in the nativity. Maybe they had so many kids they made up parts.
The next day I went in and asked the teacher how the nativity went.
Teacher: "Great, Leif was a shepherd."
(And apparently one of the little boys in the class was adament he was going to be Mary, which miffed a few of the girls.)
