Mummy, Forced to Discuss Christian Theology

Clara: "But.  What happened to baby Jesus?"
Me: "You mean after his birthday?"
Clara: "Yes, after Christmas.  What happened to the baby?"
Me: "He grew up.  And then he died, which is kind of a long story.  But he did get to grow up.  He did woodwork, they say.  Like Grandpa."
Clara: "Oh.  Was it 115 years ago?"
Me: "Longer. 2,000."
Clara: "But that's when there were dinosaurs!  You're wrong Mummy."
Me: "Uh.  Well.  I could be wrong, but I think it went: dinosaurs, Jesus, us in the present day."
Clara: "Are there more muffins?"
