Children are God's gift

This post is dedicated to those who have children, or in charge of children. A little bit of something for you guys to ponder upon, and have a good laugh.  Clef is in her weekend mood, so her brain is half dead, too lazy to crack up some original article. Here goes:

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.

BUT THERE IS REASSURANCE IN THE 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?

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'!!!


Cleffairy: Children are all about trials and terror, trust me on this.

Now, you and Rachel should enjoy shopping for baby’s stuff. LOL… got checklist oredi anot? =.= Oh? facebook ah? I dun have one. =.= too lazy to plaster my face on the net. besides, my hubby will have my head at the guillotine before I could even upload my pictures on the net. =.= Fb can have empty acc anot?

    Chris… well… raising kids is all worth it, though they sometimes makes your blood boil. Ahahaha…but it’ll be all worth it when we have grandkids and gets to see em suffer the same fate as us! 😛

    Hi first time here. A good one. Yes parenting is a never ending process. From baby to toddler, pre-schooler, teenager. Even untill when they have grown up, we have to learn communicating with their bf/gf, son-in-law, daughter-in-law bla bla bla ….. Wah so much things to learn! But still all these things did not stop us from not having our own children. 🙂
