The Kiddos

  1. Since mine can, at moments, be a little beastly, my husband sent this to me as a reminder....

    To those of you who have children in your lives, whether they are on their own, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, or students... here is something to make you chuckle:

    Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own children. After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was, "Don't".
    "Don't what?" Adam replied
    "Don't eat the forbidden fruit," God said.
    "Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey, Eve . . . we have forbidden fruit!"
    "No way!"
    "Yes way!"
    "Do NOT eat the fruit!" said God.
    "Why?"
    "Because I am your Father and I said so!" God replied, (wondering why he hadn't stopped creation after making the
    elephants.) A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked!
    "Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" God, as our first parent, asked.
    "Uh, huh," Adam replied.
    "Then why did you?" said the Father.
    "I don't know," said Eve.
    "She started it!" Adam said.
    "Did not!"
    "Did too!"
    "DID NOT!"

    Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus, the
    pattern was set and it has never changed! But there is reassurance in this story. If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself. If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?
