The Christmas Parenting Woes of Mary.

All parents have some parenting woes of some shape or form. For most it’s a case of NEVER SLEEPING, for Mary I guess it was a slightly different set of woes she had to put up with when Jesus was born.

  • Many, many, unexpected guests.
  • Joseph nipping our with the shepherds to wet the baby’s head.
  • The place (presumingly) looking like a mess.
  • Drafty barn type accommodation.
  • Dealing with a Talking Donkey.
  • Possibly still fielding questions about the timing of the birth / marriage.
  • Just as she’s just getting used to parenting, a bunch of “wise men” appear.
  • That kid still flipping drumming.
  • Wanting nappies as a gift… and getting myrrh.
  • Wondering if the smell was baby or animal.

I guess I’m thankful we didn’t have to put up with a little drummer boy when Little Sofa was born.

Jesus Drink Markers! 

They may not turn water into wine, but it seems that Jesus can help you keep an eye on which glass of wine is yours. The product description calls Jesus your drinking buddy, which still sounds like a good thing

Find it over on Amazon

The Jesus Family Snow Globe.

Snow Globes are Christmas. Well they are around Sofa HQ, and we have to admit. Baby Jesus with Mary and Joseph are VERY Christmas. Why not combine the two into a snow globe?

Or at least a water ball… from Amazon. (I’m presuming thats the same as a snow globe).

Wish Jesus A Happy Birthday…

Wish Jesus a Happy Birthday EVERYWHERE you go, with this jumper / sweater thing. Amazon even has a load of different colours

The Cuddly Jesus!

Perhaps you’re look to give a Church kid something… Jesus like?

Perhaps you’re looking to give something… soft?

Combine the two and give a Jesus Soft Toy!

Could be worth a cuddle?

Have you played THE EPIC Christmas Party Game?

Do your friends wish people would look up for the Lord more often, and not look for Father Christmas?

Probably best you don’t play this game with them…

Tempted? Amazon is your friend…  (Affiliate link)
