Those of Us With Parenting Troubles Are in Good Company!

Got this email from my mom today and realized, I am not alone!

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.


"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!"

Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.

Ha! Now I don't feel quite so bad!

LOL Love it. So true. Parenthood makes me feel bad for everything I ever did as a child/teenager.
