Zacchaeus

I’ve mentioned before that Tornado E is going to a Lutheran school, and because he’s going to a Christian school, he goes to chapel every Wednesday.  This week he learned about Zacchaeus, and as we left the school, I amazed my son by singing the song he had learned that day in chapel.  (I went to Catholic school for 10 years; I know some Bible Songs.)

Tornado E: Mommy, what’s a “wee little man?”

Me: Well, it’s another way to say short.  Zacchaeus was a short man.

Tornado E: Oh.  Short like me?

Me: No.  Probably short like Daddy.  (The Husband is 5 foot 5 inches.  In my family, that’s midget size.)

Tornado E: Oh.  Is Daddy a wee little man?

Me: Um, no.  I wouldn’t suggest calling him that unless you can run faster than him.
