Baby Jesus Duster

😦  No pictures this time, sorry.  Just use your imagination.  🙂

So I was dusting the house… okay don’t fall over… I do occasionally clean the house.
I digress, that’s not the point of this story.

While decorating for the Steeler’s Super Bowl game,
Mercedes found a basket and a swiffer duster.

Next thing we know,

“Baby Jesus in a manger.”

She covered Baby Jesus up with her Towel.

Laying there in our kitchen was
a basket,
a swiffer duster,
and a towel.

Jim and I continued cooking, decorating, and setting up for the SuperBowl.
All of the sudden, two balloons showed up next to Baby Jesus.

“What are the balloons doing here baby?”
“Baby Jesus’ Mommy & Daddy.”

So now, Laying in our kitchen was
a basket,
a swiffer duster,
a towel,
a red balloon,
and a blue balloon.

More cooking, baking, and mixing.
More steamer hanging, chair moving, and vacuuming.

“Change diaper, Mommy.”
Yes, she went over to the blanket, laid “Baby Jesus” down,
took a diaper out of the ottoman, and preceded to take it to the trash can saying,
“Poopy diaper.  Ewwwwww!”

So now, in our kitchen was
a basket,
a swiffer duster,
a towel,
a red balloon,
a blue balloon,
and a pretend poopy diaper.

Again more getting ready for the SuperBowl.

“Change diaper, Mommy.”
Repeat above steps…
took a diaper out of the ottoman, and preceded to take it to the trash can saying,
“Poopy diaper.  Ewwwwww!”

Except this time Mommy stopped her and said…
“No baby, we’re not going to waste a clean diaper on…”
And that’s where I lost it.
I broke into hysterical laughter.
I almost said…
“We’re not going to waste a clean diaper on… Baby Jesus!!”

The rest of the night,
Baby Jesus wore a diaper, tightly put on thanks to Daddy.
Mercedes carried Baby Jesus around the house.
(Remember, Baby Jesus is a swiffer duster.)
In the end, Mommy put her foot down when Baby Girl wanted to take the dirty duster to bed.

It does warm my heart that her pretend play focuses around Jesus!
I pray this obsession is just a sign of things to come.
