So this is the paragraph I just read: "Remember the story of Jesus' birth by making "babies" in swaddling clothes. Remind your child to wash his or her hands. Open a can of breadstick dough, and have your child pull the breadsticks apart. Help your child wrap a hot dog in each portion of the dough, leaving the top of the hot dog unwrapped as the baby's head. Bake according to the package directions. Say a prayer of thanks with your child, and enjoy the snacks."
Does anyone else see anything weird about this? Maybe it's just the picture of the hotdog/breadstick on the page in front of me, or maybe it's the mental picture of trying to tell my 3 year old (who thinks he knows everything anyway) that we're going to pretend that this hotdog is a baby and the bread is the swaddling clothes.
Then we're going to eat the baby? I'm sorry, but I just don't get it. As I type this, I'm laughing so hard at this ridiculous idea that I keep having to backspace to correct all my typos.
Should I draw a face on the hotdog before I eat it, or would that be going a bit too far? :)
