I guess I should be expecting three wise men on my doorstep soon

Will’s big into babies right now, wanting to hold them and cuddle them and kiss them. He keeps trying to hold Henry, who weighs just a few pounds less than Will and can run almost as fast as he can, so Will’s nurturing efforts are thwarted on a regular basis.

So, taking matters into his own hands, Will has been announcing that he has a baby in his belly, so often that we now absently respond, “That’s great, honey, do you want some more toast?”

When he said last night that he needed more milk for the baby in his belly, I poured some and almost dropped the carton when he announced the baby’s name.

“Jesus.”

You heard it here first.

    You’ll have to dress up your garage as a manger and get some animals. Hilarious!

    Brilliant! You know, we’ve been thinking about switching churches. So, will Will be conducting services from the swingset in the backyard? I imagine the top of the slide would make a great pulpit.
