Daddy: ‘Thats Gabriel Asher. Did you know that we named your sister after the angel’.
Asher: ‘No you didn’t, you name her after Gabby from desperate house wives’.
Asher continues: ‘Are angels boys daddy?’
Daddy: ‘I don’t know. I don’t think they are boys or girls’.
Asher: ‘Cant be, they must be half boy and half girl.’

Asher: ‘This is re-iculous. I’m not reading this anymore.’
Reading about the birth of Jesus, Asher(8) asks me: ‘Daddy, did Joseph ever marry Mary’.
Daddy: ‘I think he did marry her after Jesus was born’.
Asher thinking first then responds: ‘That’s a funny way of doing things’
