Something To Make You Chuckle.

To those of us who have children in our lives,
whether they are our own,
grandchildren,
nieces,
nephews,
or students...

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 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.

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 ?
THINGS TO THINK ABOUT !

1. You spend the first two years of their life
teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend
the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.

2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children.

3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.

4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat
word for word what you shouldn't have said

5. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind
yourself that there are children more awful than your own

6. We childproofed our homes, but they are still getting in.



ADVICE FOR THE DAY:

Be nice to your kids. They will choose your
nursing home one day

AND FINALLY:

IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF TENSION AND YOU
GET A HEADACHE, DO WHAT IT SAYS ON
THE ASPIRIN BOTTLE:


'TAKE TWO ASPIRIN' AND 'KEEP AWAY
FROM CHILDREN'!!!!!

Lol this story may be a little older, but it was exactly what I needed today, thanks

My niece has 3 year old twin girls... adorable they are too... she had a moment the other week, where she wanted to watch this show on the TV. the girls were acting feral, so she told them to sit on the couch, and not to get off...... when the show finished she asked them to come over to her and she'd give them some hugs because they were so good!!! this tiny voice replied..'we're not allowed to get off the couch!!!'<br />
I have a blog called...While you wasn't looking'... it sums up this topic beautifully.

*huge smiles* Love this. Totally!! Especially the part about teaching them to walk and talk then telling them to sit down and be quiet. I've noticed too, that we spend time teaching our kids that their bodies are theirs and they have the right to say no to anyone who wishes to touch them. Then we keep insisting that they give a hug to anyone who wants one, whether or not they want to.

yeah, we are never to old to learn a few things....
