Update: I'm bumping this post up because I had some funky brackets in it originally that hid some of the dialog.
This doesn't really fall into the "cute" category, but here goes:
So I'm sitting with my 6 and 4 year old girls, trying to explain why Rabbi Yehuda HaNassi committed the oral law to writing in the form of the Mishnah when it was clearly forbidden to do so (I told you it wasn't cute).
When I get to the part about the Beit HaMikdash (Holy Temple) being destroyed, the 4-year-old starts bawling.
Me: Why are you crying?
4: Beit HaMikdash!
6: She's sad because the Beit HaMikdash was destroyed.
4: (continued crying, now with nodding head)
Me: Well, you know, the Rabbis say that those who cry for the Beit HaMikdash will merit to rejoice in it.
4: (smiles slightly)
6: (Starts to look sad)
Me: What's wrong with you?
6: I want to cry, too.
(6 later asked me if she'd be able to see the Beit HaMikdash if she didn't cry - I assured her she would.)
