Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
I don’t believe in evolution. I don’t know why anyone would. What a silly idea.
But … for the sake of a fun discussion, I read this funny line by an old comedian – Milton Berle.
If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?
There’s a definite need for mommies to have more than one hand. Daddies, too. Especially if there are more than one kid in the family. For the record, there’s only one of me.
But … this morning, mommy was fixing my hair, painting my face (for a Halloween party), putting finishing touches on my costume, and helping me take care of little girl things – all stuff that daddies cannot do. Daddy made breakfast and washed the dishes and got the car ready and stuff.
Now imagine if there were more than one of me!
My daddy had two brothers and three sisters. And his mommy still had only 2 hands!
Long time ago families were even bigger.
But, Berle, is right. Evolution, if there were anything to it which there isn’t, didn’t work. Mommies still have two hands.
Daddies need bigger backs and stronger arms … to carry tired little girls.
“Mia, how come I am always carrying you?”
