  • Toddlers hilariously fight over baby Jesus during church nativity: watch video

During a church's Christmas pageant, a pre-school nativity scene took a turn.

That is, until Mary decides she is having none of it and tries to grab poor Jesus back from the sheep - a tussle ensues.

When the doll was cradled by Teegan, a 3-year-old playing Mary in the skit decided the show must go on and took the baby away.

Meanwhile, the little girl playing Mary chose to take matters into her own hands and reclaim the doll. "Laughed so hard I cried!" she wrote.

In a video shared on Facebook by mom Tana Benson, Sunday's nativity-themed pageant seemed to get off to a good start.

So as Jesus laid away in a manger, Teegan couldn't give him away to anyone.

"(We have) a sheep stealing the Baby Jesus and Mary with the WWE Smackdown", Benson said with a laugh. "We weren't supposed to touch the baby Jesus!' I told her we were sorry!"

"Actually everything on my Facebook has been really private, and it was private, and then a lady asked if she could share it", Benson said.

"These kids both love our church, love being here and both have a passion for Jesus, and so I think the message that we want to get across is He is the reason for Christmas", she said. "(Mary) is a stickler for the rules.
