Oh the things their little minds imagine!

Since Mason was a baby, we have explained to the boys that Santa brings three gifts to them because baby Jesus received three gifts from the wise men when they visited him.  This year Andrew has asked for collectible Lego Star Wars models that are no longer in production and are VERY EXPENSIVE.  We have explained to him that Santa cannot bring these kinds of things and it is too much to ask.  He remembers that Santa gives gifts to many children and to ask him for such extravagant things is a bit selfish.  I was telling him this yet again reinforcing this lesson on Saturday afternoon when Andrew said, "I'm gonna be happy with whatever Santa brings me, you know, Jesus was happy with what he got even when one of his gifts was deodorant."  I was a bit confused and said...."What?"  He said, "You know, the stuff that smelled good."  I remembered a conversation we had, probably last year, when I explained what frankincense and myrrh were.  He must have put together that frankincense, meant to make things smell good, was ancient deodorant.  I have laughed and laughed about this ever since.  I love seeing where there minds take things we try to explain to them from so long ago.  Now I think Santa should put deodorant in his stocking every year just so I can giggle ;-)

Check out more cute stories on Mary's Tiny Tot Tuesday fun!

That is a great story! I agree -- Santa should leave deodorant every year! It would be a great stocking stuffer! What a hoot!
