someday it’ll all get straightened out

Over here, the kids in the family are into identifying the people whom we meet and see.  “What’s the mailman’s name, Mama?  Who are those kids on that Christmas card?”  The kids’ general state of confusion, however, has been taken one step further with the introduction of the Buddha Nightlight as a Christmas gift from Grammy.

For reasons that I’ll never understand, Buddha has taken up residence underneath our dining room table along with a Playmobil police boat.  As was emphatically explained to me this afternoon when my daughter was cuddling Buddha under the table, “This is Baby Jesus.  She is a girl, and she lives here in her stable.”

Got it.  No confusion here.   And deciding to place a Rudolph blinking nose on Buddha makes total sense too…
