Last Christmas Kalena got a Little People nativity. It was one of the first things we got out this year, and I’ve been trying to make a point to Kalena that this isn’t an everyday toy, it’s a special Christmas toy. One of the things I’ve been doing is making sure it gets kept out as a display instead of put away with all her other toys, so anytime we’re cleaning up toys I help her gather up all the pieces and set it back up on the coffee table.
Being two, she isn’t particularly helpful when we’re looking for missing pieces, although she does enjoy “helping.” Mostly she likes to say, “Unner a bed? Noooooo… Unner a chair? Noooooo…” But when I ask her where the pieces are she generally just asks me right back. She tried a different tactic today though. We were only missing one of the wise men, so I asked her where the wise man was and she responded by wandering from room to room saying, “Hewwo? Wise man?”
I found him eventually. In the Christmas tree.
