“Mommy,” says the boy excitedly, “I know why God made onions! Remember when we were studying on eyes, and you said we have to cry because it cleans out the bad stuff from our eyes? Well, its okay for girls to cry at anything, but God made onions so that boys would have a reason to cry! He didn’t want us to be stuck with bad things in our eyes!”
Reasons why God made sure that men didn’t have to give birth. My son is loosing his seventh tooth. Admittedly not a pleasant expecience. But no matter, this is the most incredibly painful loose tooth experience ever. No child has ever, in the course of recorded history experienced such pain and torture!
That is why men can’t give birth! My daughter has undergone so many terrible things for her bladder/kidney issue… and she keeps on ticking. Mind you she gets a little ornery… but you would think she was dealing with her annoying brother, not a large amount of pain.
And last… My daughter, is sitting here reading to me from King Midas. I would really like to tear the book away from her. I can’t have my baby reading yet! And there she sits, reading beautifully.
Edited to add: DD read the entire book, all 62 pages to me. She struggled with words like: sausages, goldsmiths, clocks, servants, secret, and “of course.” But then she read words like: morning, night, flash, wondered, turned and touched.
I think this is very exciting, but a little bitter sweet for Momma!
