Sometimes the simplest things take forever.
I was reading my 3 and 5 year old a very simple version of the baptism of Christ.
John the Baptist's clothing came into question.
"Why is he dressed different?"
"He's wearing animal skins."
"Where's the animal?"
I explained as briefly as possible and attempted to finish the story.
"So he took out the animal's insides? Well, that makes sense. Because if he didn't then he'd have blood running down his legs, and he's not wearing any pants, so that would be gross."
"Really gross", affirmed the 3 year old at top volume as he leaped off the ottoman to climb up and see the picture. "Why isn't he wearing any pants!?!"
