Bel: i don't get it. why didn't God just make us smart? is it because of sin that we have to do school?
Me: i don't know Bel. God just wants us to do the best we can at school and everything He asks us to do.
(dodging question, still folding socks..)
Bel: hum... but why do we really need to know this? why would God care about rhyming words? when am i going to need to know rhyming words for God?
(looking up from laundry at my new teenager..)
Me: you need to just do it Bel.
Me: i don't get it ... God- why didn't they just come potty trained...?
