Do you think stealing Baby Jesus from the manger will get me in trouble with Santa???
Mommy has this really lovely nativity set her sister gave her as a gift from another country. It is handmade and very unique.
Well, normally she puts it on her diningroom sideboard but this year she decided to put it out on the solarium floor with little pieces of "hay".
She noticed that the "baby was missing"! All the wisemen, angels, camels, sheep, Joseph and Mary were all exactly as they should be BUT no baby was to be found. She looked and looked (I helped her....hee, hee)
She found it during the night when she woke up and started patting me thinking she woke me up (fat chance). The baby was tucked under me for protection and I was sound sleep. Thinking it was just a fluke, she put the baby back and lo and behold it disappeared again and was found under me in bed when we went to sleep.
She's since moved the nativity set away from my reach but I'm hoping Santa will understand that I'm not a felon but was just "baby sitting".
