25 Days of Christmas: Day 6

The Plan:

Today the Pickle is going to open the Jesus, Mary & Joseph part of her Little People Nativity.  We will put it together with her sheep.  Role play the Christmas story.  Push the Jesus down a million times to hear that loud, tinny version of Silent Night.  And hopefully she’ll play with it for hours.

The Reality:

Oh she opened it alright.  We hurried home from school.  I let her dump the thing out on its roof.  Remembered I was smart and took the batteries out before I packed it up last year, so I had to hurry and take apart a couple remotes to find enough batteries to make it work.  The animals were still upstairs in her Noah’s Ark, so she made Mary come through the stable door and make a mooing sound.  She pushed the button about twice, and suddenly we were off in the car on another adventure.

Nativity to be played with at a later date.

My husband did text later asking why the remotes didn’t work.
