The Easter story according to Sproglet

Sproglet in the car yesterday: 'Mummy if you died it would not be very nice.'

CM : 'Mummy isn't going to die honey.'

Sproglet: 'No No No. If you die. People are cross. Your Mummy and Daddy are cross.'

CM: 'Yes..... but why are we talking about dying?'

Sproglet: 'It is ok Mummy. Because the rock is rolled away.'

CM: 'A huh. The rock.'

Sproglet: 'Yes and then you get up again. You are not deaded.'

CM: 'Did you hear the Easter story today? The one about Jesus?'

Sproget; 'Yes. Jesus, he was cross.'

CM: 'On the cross maybe?'

Sproglet: 'Yes. His Mummy cried. Can I have an easter egg?'

Brilliant!!! I'd go to church if the stories were that good!!I once taught my year 3 class the Easter story and called Pontius(sp)Pilate - Pontius Pilates for the whole lesson! Never listened in RE at school - day dreamed of boys instead!

This more than makes up for the harrowing tale of how your father treated you, which I read before this entry. I guess at the end of the day you need to focus on the next generation, rather than the one that has gone before.
