A little girl was sitting at the kitchen table, drawing a picture of her mom and dad with crayons.

She started thinking about her grandparents… but what about her grandparents’ parents? And their parents?

Thoughtfully, she asked her mother, “Mom, where do people come from? I mean, does everyone have parents?”

Her mother answered, “God made Adam and Eve and they had children, and then those children had their own children, and on and on until today.”

The girl nodded. After a while, she needed a blue crayon for the sky in her drawing, so she went to her room to get another crayon box.

When she got to her room, she saw that her father was there, setting up a shelf. She asked him the same question.

The father answered, “Many years ago, there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.”

The confused girl returned to her mother and said, “Mom, you tricked me! You told me the human race was created by God, but dad said they evolved from monkeys!”

The mother answered, “Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his.
