Hannah picked up a copy of our National Geographic.
"Look Nana! An Egyptian mommy!"
"Let's get grossed out!"
As I was reading the article about Egypt, there was a picture of the Nile river and the wilderness. That led to a fun story-telling about Moses being hid in the river as a baby. And how the princess found him. And then as an adult fleeing into the wilderness (I traced on the page with my finger from the river to the wilderness) I explained how he met Jethro and began to work for him and that he got married to Jethro's daughter.
Hannah: Boys marry girls. Who do you want to marry, Sophia?
Sophia: I don't want to do that marrying thing.
Hannah: You have to! Who do you want to marry?
Sophia: I want to marry mommy.
(Perhaps an Egyptian mommy?)
Sorry, Adam and Jill. I am sure the kids had a super sugar high this evening!!!
