Nativity musings of a 5YO

All afternoon Esme has been singing the songs she has begun to learn at school for her nativity play. 

Those of you following LIFE AS IT IS, will remember that last year I had a teeny bit of Mary envy about this time.

On hearing the lyrics tell the story of a baby born in a manger, I asked Esme, "Oh, do you know who is Joseph and who is Mary?"

Yes, she said. Joseph is a boy and Mary is a girl.

That'll teach me.

Following this conversation, I questioned Esme further: "Do you think you would like to be Mary?" 

"No" she said.

"Why's that?" I asked.

"Because I would like to be the donkey."

And I suppose that will teach me again.
