A snippet from our dinner conversation....

We somehow got talking about man and woman, the words.

Mr. Hockey: God made Eve from one of Adam's ribs
Princess: Yah, that is gross
Dad: Men have one less rib, right mom?
Me: We will look it up for sure tomorrow
Mr. Hockey: I am a man
Princess: No your a boy, men have hairy armpits
Mr. Hockey: I have hairy armpits
Everyone rolls around in was just so candid.

Then Dad says: You know how they got the word woman?
Kids: How?
Dad: When Adam woke up and saw Eve he said Whoa, man!!
Kids erupt in laughter!!
Dad: When I saw your mom...I said Whoa, man!!!

Me, thinking to myself, I know why I am the one homeschooling the kids and not him!!

  3. When I was in grade school, our health teacher was teaching us about the skeletal system. He asked, "How many ribs do people have?" I shot my hand up. I didn't know how many, but knew that men must have one less than women because God created Eve from Adam's rib. I was so excited to share what I knew, but was devastated when the teacher told me it just wasn't true. "Men and women have the same number of ribs." I'll never forget that.

    Your post made think of that.

    That is all.
