Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

The origin of the species – by a three-year-old

with 5 comments

For some reason, WordPress will not let me post my Silent Sunday pic for tonight. So here, instead, I give you The Origin of the Species, by a three-year-old (who happens to be DS).

DS: Who was the first person on earth?

Me: “Well, we don’t really know that, darling.” [Pause while I think about religion. Do I want to go into that?] “But some people think it was a man called Adam.”

DS: “No. That’s not right.”

Me: “Really? [What have you been learning at school?]

DS: “It wouldn’t be a man… the first person on earth would be a baby.”

Good point, I thought.

“Actually,” added DS, “I think I’ve played with him in the park.”
