The Hebrews

Rate: 1 Flag

I hesitate to resort to the "kids say the darnedest things" school of blog posting, but I will have a longer entry soon, and I can't resist these vignettes resulting from the twins' new course of study, Hebrew mythology.

Nini, holding a doll, to the workman who came by the house: "This is my baby, and his name is Moses. I have to save him from Pharaoh."

Nini pointing to chair in the living room: "This is the flaming bush, and Nini will be voicing God."

The ever-practical Desmond has announced that his favorite thing about the ancient world was the arch.
