Gramma: "Hmmm, and where would that show be?"
P - "At home."
Note: Patrick entertains the family most nights with his own shows. For some reason he is obsessed with Jesus…..not saying that's a bad thing. But, he wanted to be Jesus for Halloween, then changed his mind. Won't he be surprised when he opens his present on Christmas Eve from Aunt Jen and Uncle Chad and sees his very own JESUS costume!!!! Keep in mind, he is not making fun of our baby Jesus; rather, I think he is pretty amazed by Jesus and truly believes. YES!!!
Anyway, when we got home, he dashed downstairs, scotch tape in hand. I followed him, only to see him measuring the width of his arms straight out ( like a T). He then proceeded to tape drum sticks to the wall on the area where the stage is. He then stood atop a small chair, arms outstretched (to the wooden drum sticks) and in his lowest voice (chin down to accentuate it)said "I AM JESUS."
"Welllllll," I said, "how about if you say the words that Jesus said on the cross: 'Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.' "
He seemed to like that and so he repeated (arms outstretched, of course) "Father, please forgive them….(hesitation)…. They don't know WHAT they're doing."
Out of the mouths of babes….
