white clawed jesus


so suddenly it seems we wake up with a kid...and suddenly it seems we are meant to parent said kid...and suddenly said kid is asking all sorts of questions that i never really thought i would have the need to prepare to answer...like for example - bryson came into the office the other day while i was working and tells me he is scared of Jesus. "why?" i ask..."because he has white claws and white eyes and scary hair"...hmmm...i try to think of how he got this image of Jesus and who exactly he thinks Jesus is anyway - we say his prayers every night and he knows Jesus lives in heaven with stars and angels, but how did he come to be a monster i asked him...no answer...so i googled Jesus...isn't that funny? i wanted to put a different image in his head than a monster so i googled our Lord and Savior...anyway - this wonderful picture came up and i showed him that Jesus was a man and probably had a beard and was Jewish...i am sure we can discuss that later...but i suppose it helped replace white-claw Jesus with baby lamb Jesus at least...is there a book somewhere for all of this? cause i should probably read that book...this kid is surprising me every day with how he makes sense of the world...
