Little boys + playmobil = imagination gone wild.
Landis and I pulled out the playmobil nativity set last week, and had fun putting together all the little pieces and parts, including the robes that go so well over the wise men’s shoulders. Of course, Landis, being a 4 year old boy, has no concept of why a king would wear a robe. So as we snapped on their colorful robes and started to bring them to the baby King Jesus to worship Him, Landis said, “So they fly in like this,” and I said, “No, the kings can’t fly,” and he said, “But Mom, then why are they wearing CAPES???”
Ah yes. The three Super Hero kings. So our kings fly in to worship Jesus. Why else would they be sporting capes?
As long as they are worshipping Jesus, I guess it doesn’t matter whether they ride on a camel, or fly.
