This is what went on this morning at our house:
Me: (Attempting to get her motivated to get dressed and get going) Tonight we are going to go out to eat and to go get a Christmas tree! Doesn't that sound like fun?
H: A tree for Daddy's birthday? (which is next week)
Me: No, actually, I guess the tree is for Jesus' birthday.
H: Who is Jesus? (What!? Jesus Loves Me is like her favorite song??)
Me: Remember, he is God's son, we sing about him at church.
H: Why are we going out to eat with Jesus for his birthday?
Its a good thing we are not doing Elf on the Shelf, because apparently I suck at communicating how all this stuff ties into Christmas!
