Z9 (playing on computer while chatting with me): So, let me get this straight, you’re the Easter Bunny?

Me: Yes, that’s right.

Z9: And you are also the Tooth Fairy?

Me: That’s right.

Z9: Are you also Santa Clause?

Me: Absolutely not. Santa is the real deal.

He goes back to playing on computer, then turns and looks up at me again completely serious

Z9: Are you Jesus?

Me: No son, not even close.

I was worried that somehow after all my careful teaching that he had somehow equated Jesus with these mythical characters, but after some discussion he assured me that he knew Jesus had been a real person who now lives in Heaven with God, but he just wanted to “make sure.”
