Wink Children

To those of us who have children in our lives, whether they are our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or 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 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 to!"
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?

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I've heard many people say that kids are a real headache and a nuisance 99% of the time, and that 1% when they are little angels and say something cute, that *JUST* outweighs the bad so it ends up being worth it - JUST.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

I have to agree - that just shows how biased parents can be toward their kids!


"Daddy, why is Mummy always sitting on that side of the car?"
"Weight distribution, Son."

Yes, but it's the "just" that makes it all worthwhile.

If my kids are bad, they're the wife's.
When they are good, they're mine. Hehehehe
