Conversation during snack time.

Sofia: Henry, guess what? We're all animals! Who talk!

Henry: What?

Sofia: And Henry! Did you know? Before we were people, we were apes!

Henry: What?

Sofia: And you know what? Before we were apes, we were fish!

Henry: WHAT?

Sofia: Before we were fish, we were…hmm.

Me: Goo. We were primordial goo.

Henry: We were goo!?

Henry and Sofia throw themselves to the ground laughing for a minute or two.

Henry: Do we remember being apes?

Me: No, that was a long, long time ago. Before even I was born.

Sofia: How does fish turn into apes?

Henry: Did God make the goo or the fish? Or what?

Me: Let's have more cookies!

Excellent. Your kiddo has a much better grasp of evolution than mine. I botched the explanation, and now my kids are convinced they exited the womb as chimps.

I had this conversation with my mom when we talked about where babies come from. For a long time I thought my brother (born when I was 3), like, sauntered out of a small door in the front of her belly. Huh?

Referring to House Of Jules' comment:

And ape eating gefilte fish in goo out of a jar would encapsulate the whole store quite nicely, don't you think? Now who plays God?
