It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Merry Christmas!

I don’t know how much anyone will be blogging over the holidays (including myself), so in case this is it until January,

Merry Christmas!

I hope you all, no matter what your beliefs, have a joyful and life-giving holiday.

  6. No more than half an hour after the last family left the daycare Christmas party I just threw, when there’s a loud rap at our door, and there are carollers standing in the falling snow! Now it really feels like Christmas!

  13. Thanks, everyone. Hope your holidays are all going well.

    Lory: we found that pictures after I complained, having completed my Google image search for “nativity” that there were no pictures of Joseph holding the baby. Emma, bright child that she is, sat down and googled “Joseph holding Jesus”, and found a ton.

    I picked this one because it’s so true to life. What do you want to do one the baby’s out and nursed, and the flurry’s over? Sleep, that’s what, and what good daddy wouldn’t take that time to meet his offspring, cuddle him, stare in love and normal parental wonder?

    Reminds us, in a way that pictures of adoring adults staring tentatively/reverently at a glowing babe doesn’t, that he was a baby in a family, just like every other baby born on this planet.
