When Joe and Jaime were little we’d drive around looking at all the Christmas lights in December, admiring the color and creativity of other more ambitious souls. We came across a nativity scene and Terry explained that we were looking at Mary and Joseph and the baby Jesus in the manger. Joe, sitting in the back seat, asked “Where’s Jaime?” Terry replied, “She’s in the back seat with you!”
We drove further along, commenting on all the pretty decorations, and found another nativity, and Terry again, being the good Dad, named Mary and Joseph and baby Jesus. Again from the back seat Joe asked, “But where’s Jaime?” Puzzled, Terry replied, “She’s in the car seat next to you!” More driving, more lights, more Christmas cheer, and another nativity …. more “Where’s Jaime?” It finally dawned on us that big brother Joe was thinking since there was a Joseph in the nativity scene, there naturally should be a Jaime.
Doesn’t that make perfect sense when you’re five?
