Jesus and a fashion show

So Avery is learning all about the nativity scene, Jesus being born, and how he is God's son. Some interesting conversations have followed. How all of this "big stuff" computes in a three year old has been so sweet and hilarious at the same time. So here's a funny one...

I was talking to Avery about being in a pageant at school and she informed me that Jesus was going to be in it. I asked her what her "role" was. Thinking her answer would be angel, sheep, Mary, etc... instead she said,

"It's going to be a fashion show- I'm going to be a princess and Jesus will be in it too."

I still haven't stopped laughing. Part of me wonders if I have steered her wrong somehow in all these explanations, but I think Jesus got a little chuckle out of that. I'm not sure burlap robes and sandaled feet make much of a fashion show and how my daughter even knows what a fashion show is is definitely beyond me... anyway, can't wait to see what this pageant is! HA!
