Second Born Son: Are we going to church tomorrow?
Me: Yes, it is Palm Sunday.
SBS: What’s so special about that?
Me: That’s the day that Jesus road into Jerusalem on a donkey and people spread out robes and palm branches.
SBS: Oh, so what’s next week then?
Me: Easter – when Jesus is crucified.
SBS: Crucified? What’s that?
Me: (perplexed – we are regular Easter attendees and he’s heard the Easter story before.) When he was nailed to the cross.
SBS: Ew ya, that’s gross! But I thought that’s why we have Halloween, cuz it’s scary!?
I’m a failure as a mother…..
