Hunter: Mummy… what’s Easter?
Me: Oh. It’s when Jesus died on the cross and then he rose again after 3 days. So we celebrate that… with… ermmm.. these plastic Easter eggs that we fill up with chocolate. It’s actually for a party we’re going to.
We both go quiet in the car for a minute, pondering about the slightly ridiculous pairing of this occasion. Hunter finally responds.
Hunter: Mummy. You know, I’ve never seen God.
Me: Me neither.
Hunter: When I see God, I’ll share all my chocolate Easter eggs with him.
Me: That’s sweet, Hunter. I think He’d like that.
