And in the preschool Nativity this year….that mother was Celia.
She was VERY excited about her part. Then she found out she was not going to be given a REAL baby, much less the REAL Jesus to bring home…and she was a little less than happy.
But then she found out she got to wear a costume, and the excitement returned. I had a brief panic attack after we got to the school and put her costume on and discovered a very obvious tattoo on her arm. We found some alcohol and managed to rub it off and avoid the stigma of being ‘Biker Babe Mary’ for the school play.
I have to say she made a very good Mary. Very patient. Sat still and pretty throught the whole play.
