Moses and Miriam
So at our family's seder we go around and tell the Passover story in our own words, right?
This year, Aviva (who also sang the intro to the Four Questions in pitch-perfect Aramaic -- well, with per-phrase prompting -- and cleared all the dishes, and generally had a great time and was delightful) told the story of Moses and Miriam, as follows:
"they wanted to kill the baby. but miriam said to her mommy, put him in a box. so they made a box. then miriam hid in the grass. she was little and she hid in the grass and her LITTLE BROTHER was in the box, um, um, um, and then this little princess came and she said 'I want a baby! But I dont have any milk!' and then Miriam JUMPED OUT and she said 'I know a woman who has milk!' and they got her and she gave the milk and it was MOSES'S MOMMY and then Moses grew up in the castle!"
Aviva is all about the saving little brothers from immanent peril.Posted by benrosen at April 26, 2005 02:59 PM | Up to blog
