The First Birth

So I got to thinking about pregnancy and birth (logical thoughts right now, huh?) I was talking to The Man about my OB and all the prenatal stuff. He might have nodded off a couple of times or been playing a game on his cell phone, I can't be sure so we will give him the benefit of the doubt that he was really interested in what I had to say. (Yeah, I will go with that)

I started thinking about The First Birth and what that must have been like for The First Parents. According to The Bible that I have read and from what I have heard...the only instructions/advice/warnings/etc. that God gave Eve for childbirth was (this is a loose interpretation) "It's gonna hurt ya girl!" I saw no conversations about the "birds & bees", conception, gestation, labor and delivery. Can you just imagine the thoughts and conversations that went on back then?

Adam: "Eve, you are really starting to put on some weight. You may want to cut back on those figs and dates"

Eve: "God, what is going on with me?...."what's a baby"...."how does it get out"...."it comes out WHERE?"..."How big does it get?"..."9 months? what's a month?"

Adam: "Eve, we have a boy" "Yes dear, everything is fine except for this tail that comes out of his stomach"

Eve: "Adam, do not ever touch me again" "It's your turn to change the leaf"

That's a spin I've never heard from the pulpit! True though. Very true.

I laughed so hard at the tail coming out of the stomach that my husband had to hear this conversation between Adam and Eve too. Thanks for the laugh :o)
