Conversations with Charlotte: A thought provoking question

Charlotte: Are Mary and Joseph real?

Me: Yes, they were real. They were really Jesus' parents.

Charlotte: In a story?

Me: Well, the bible tells about them in a story but it really happened a long time ago that they were real people.

Charlotte: Who watched him when they were gone?

Me: What do you mean- when they were gone where?

Charlotte: When Mary and Joseph were gone on a date, who watched Jesus for them?

Me: Oh ( Stifling a laugh) Well... they probably just took him with them...Or maybe they got a babysitter.

Charlotte: Oh- Maybe it was the Wise Men.
