A little Yuletide oddity

Last year, Grandpa & Grandma Liggett gave us a great Advent calendar. It's a large box containing numerous drawers, each containing a tiny ornament, a bit of story, and instructions to sing and/or a figure to the crèche. Finn's really been enjoying the process this year, though he's gotten a couple of wires crossed. This morning he was looking at a cast of Margot's belly when it contained him:


"Mom-O tummy!" he declared.
"That's right, Finny," I said. "And who was in her tummy?"
"Baby!"
"Right--and who was the baby?"
"Goonie."
"Uh-huh. And what other baby was in there?"
"Jesus!"


Oh my. :-) We sorted out the confusion, and now Finn's back to talking about how he went "POP!" out of the tummy. Meanwhile, no word on whether he's connected the dots in determining that the same Mary who appears atop the Golden Dome in his Notre Dame picture book is the same one that appears in the Nativity scene.
