12/22/05– Becky was talking to our daughter about celebrating Jesus’ birthday on Christmas. Our daughter asked, “Mommy, are we going to make a cake for Jesus? When Becky confirmed that we would, she asked, “But Mommy, who is going to blow out the candles?”
This one is funny also because it takes into consideration how literal children are. Our daughter knows that Jesus is not physically with us so she asked an obvious question that most adults wouldn’t even think about. We had the cake, the candles, so who is going to blow them out?
