Open Mouth Insert Foot

Last night I found Chandler and Gabrielle where they usually spend at least an hour each evening: curled up with Mommy on our bed having a book read to them.

Chandler was looking up at the popcorn ceiling and commented, "I think I'm seeing things up in the popcorn designs on the ceiling."

I immediately thought of the folks who have "seen" the image of Jesus or Mary in a piece of toast or in a water-stained piece of concrete, so I said, "you mean like the Virgin Mary?"

As mommy was rolling her eyes, Chandler, of course asks, "What's a Virgin?"

Mommy looks at me expectantly as I say, "You know, Jesus' mother?"

Chandler: "No, What's a Virgin?"

Me (lame answer): You know, like Mary's first name."

Tammy: "It's hard to believe we've both been parents the same amount of time."

I just noticed his testimony of sorts, published on CNN.com
