Paola - growing up

One of the cool things about having two kids that can talk to one another is that, every now and then, they fall (maybe stumble is a better word) into a real honest-to-god conversation. One our way to Needville this weekend and question emerged from the back seat from a game of angrybird vs. bunnybun: "Can God die and then come back to life?"

Adolfo took charge: Well, I heard about this when I was a baby, but i'm really not too sure about it. I mean, he WAS nailed to his own cross, so ....

So the question was posed to the adults in the front seat.

Daddy: Well, as Catholics, yes, we believe that Jesus rose from the dead.

Momma: That's what we celebrate on Easter.

Adolfo processes and then turns back to Paola to translate:

Adolfo: Okay, so on Easter, it's like God gets a 1-up.

Paola accepts this answer wholeheartedly and the game of bunnybun vs. angrybird continues in the backseat.
