Part of the creation

Tonight as Henry ate his dinner I told him about the creation of the world and all things in it. He seemed pretty fascinated.
I told him that Jesus separated the light from the dark, the water from the air and land, and that Jesus put seeds in the earth to make the grass and plants and trees and food grow. I told him that Jesus created the stars and the sun and moon.
(To my surprise his interested was still holding strong at this point.)
I continued and told him about all the animals and birds and fishes Jesus created and put on the earth. Then I asked him, "What do you think Jesus made next?"
Without hesitation he guessed, "Cookies!?"
I laughed so hard, but I could tell his guess was a serious one.
"Oh, that would have been a good idea, but no, he made a boy! And his name was Adam . . . " and I continued on.
You can sure tell what's on this kid's mind, especially when his mom is talk, talk, talking. I don't blame him one bit.

Mmmm, cookies. Cookies. Cookies . . .

Maybe Moses just left that part out of the creation story. They must have taken a cookie break sometime, it sure wasn't a coffee break.
