Nativity.

I sat with my son in Primary today. He wouldn’t go in by himself, because his teacher wasn’t there. So I sat with him, and so I was there when the Primary President said, “We’re going to do a Nativity at the Ward Party… one of you will be able to dress up as Mary, and one of you can be Joseph…”

My son, who has been fairly uninvolved up until this point, then speaks:

“I want to be a raccoon.”

    This was the best thing I ever read. because my son is OBSESSED with raccoons.
    So it isn’t just my kid. Because he insists all the time that he is a raccoon. He was a raccoon in primary today (so I heard, I stayed home sick). I guarantee if we were doing a primary nativity he would have said the exact same words.

    Why does this remind me of another brilliant statement made by your little boy? “Let’s play house; you be the daddy and I’ll be the mommy…”

    “I want to be a pirate!”

    That was one of his clever responses during a playdate with the daughter of one of your violin students… and I don’t know why it posted it twice!

    Hahaha, raccoons are awesome, and being one is a very good goal in my opinion.

    Your son knows the good things in life XD
