Poor Rudolph

image 

I was singing Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer to Jay when he started stumping me with hard questions.

Mommy: “… all of the other reindeer, used to laugh and call him names, they never let poor Rudolph join in…”

Jay: “Why poor Rudolph, Mommy?”

Mommy: “Erm. Cos the other reindeer didn’t play with him.”

Jay: “Why?”

Mommy: “Because they kept laughing at him.”

Jay: “Why?”

Mommy: “Because he had a bright red nose.”

Jay: “Why?”

Mommy: “That’s how God made him, dear.”

Jay: (changing tack) “Rudolph should play?”

Mommy: “Of course!”

Jay: “The other reindeer shouldn’t play?”

Mommy: “They should play together.”

Jay: “Why?”

Mommy: “Because that’s what good reindeers should do. You play with your friends too, correct?”

Jay: “Hm.”

Finally satisfied! Haha… Who knew a little reindeer could spark off so much interest in my son!
