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.
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.
