Religious Education: Fail
Anyhow, we're walking past a church, and Madeleine decides this is a great time to elucidate all those bits of Christianity for herself that I never quite got around to explaining to her properly:
Madeleine: Look, mummy, that's a church! That's like St James! (where we went for Christmas mass)
Me: Yes, that's right.
Madeleine: That's where Jesus was living at Christmastime. But he doesn't really live in the church does he, mummy?
Madeleine: Because he lives with his Daddy!
Me: Yes, that's about right.
Madeleine: And his Daddy is called Adboral (Admiral) Nelson! And he lives at London!
Me: Oh dear.
