Although Avery has the Veggie Tales Nativity, she much prefers to pretend with my breakable one. I'm not sure if it's sacrilegious to let her 'play' with the nativity, but it encourages talk about Jesus and the story of His birth, so it is fine by me. Plus, just the other day I heard her correct herself. "Then, the fairy said...no wait, that's not a fairy! Then, the angel said..." I breathed a sigh of relief. I have been driving that point home since last Christmas. Tinkerbell must be marketed by geniuses because in our family, if it flies...it's a fairy.
Ok, where was I? Oh yes, playing...with the breakable nativity. Well, accidents happen I suppose. First it was the cow's horns and now a wise man's head. We could do without the cow, but 2 wise men just isn't right. When I asked her what happened she said, "I'll tell you the trufe (truth). I do not know if I did it on purpose or if I didn't do it." Hmmmm... I guess it's time for a new "hands off" nativity scene!
