Jesus has 2 mommies

Notice anything peculiar about this nativity set? Yep, Jesus has two mommies! Nate was given the Fisher-Price nativity by his favorite Patty and Gary. They have one at their place, and I have always thought it was the cutest thing. (When you press the angel down, it plays music and the star lights up.) I was thrilled and so thankful they had gotten him one, and I eagerly began to unwrap it when we got home. Each piece is wrapped in it's own plastic bag. I was quite perplexed to find that we had 2 Mary figures and no Joseph. I'm left to wonder if this was done as a joke by the packer or what. Is it an attempt to modernize the Christmas story??? Some might be a bit offended, but I thought it was hilarious. So, I'd like to introduce to you baby Jesus and his two mommies. Any suggestions as to how I explain this to Nate?
(Fisher-Price is sending us a complete set of all the figurines for free, hopefully this time we'll get a Joseph.)

You are cracking me up, that's the funniest thing ever! Was Fisher Price being Politically Correct? Can you imagine the person who packed that set of figures wondering who gets stuck with the two Marys!! Maybe Mary has a long lost twin sister?

After a really lousy week this made me laugh out loud. Nate will realize in this day and age that a lot of little boys have two mommies or even two daddies. Things are different in these days but as long as the baby is loved that is all that matters!
