Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, it's Thanksgiving here this weekend. Don't know how much/if you'll see me before Tuesday, but I may just pop in. Meantime, here's a thought for a busy weekend:

But anyway.....

I think it would be more logical if, evolutionary speaking, mothers had four arms rather than three.. Otherwise they'd be lobsided and keep bumping into things....

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Hope it's filled with family, good food, lots of laughter, and someone to help you clean up afterwards. ( otherwise, i wish we were born with 3 or 4 arms ...) Enjoy!

Oh geez, I'd be a freakin' octopus!

Only three??? No, no, no . . . that's simply not enough.

But what is the alternative...if evololution is not true...then what...I am almost afraid to contemplate. Because itif were intelligent design, we'd come formed with a babysitter...

Cyberkitten: bumping into things, like fathers, and then there'd be more babies, and - hey! there's the evolutionary rationale!!

Kimmyk: Like I'm going to do any dishes? With eight children? As Henry Fonda's character said in On Golden Pond, "What's the sense of having midgets around if you can't put them to work?"

Cheryl: I'd go for eyes in the back of my head before I'd go for a third arm, myself. If anyone asked me.

Mim: Specially not with young ones. How about an extra arm or two growing with the pregnancy, and then they'd fall off when the kid got to be four or so??

Heather: Well, if we'd just stayed communal instead of getting all individualistic, we'd have a whole village of babysitters, so we have no one to blame but our independent selves!

I love it. My mother has always said that mothers should receive an extra arm while they're in the delivery room---though she had five kids so she would almost be an octopus if she got one each time!

At least my children still BELIEVE that I have eyes in the back of my head! Heh..heh..heh

Well... with the wonders of Genetic Engineering I'm guessing it won't be long until extra arms, eyes and much else will be on offer - with easy long pay terms and money back if not satisfied...

Happy Thanksgiving!

BTW, two years ago we were in Ontario for Thanksgiving, and ended up spending 10 HOURS at the border crossing coming back--- with a one year old in a carseat. It was not ideal to spend part of a holiday weekend with customs officials. Hope your day is less stressful!

Lory: Well, if my idea were taken up, she'd lose the extra arms in due course. Though I suppose if you had a whole lot of kids, you could reach a point where you'd have too much of a good thing, and you'd be tripping over your arms. So to speak.

My kids don't think I have those extra eyes anymore, but they take "mother's intuition" very seriously. (They just have NO IDEA how much they telegraph!) LOL

Cyberkitten: Much good may it do me. Like those six-bedroom homes, which I need because we have 8 kids, but can't afford - because we have 8 kids - it will be those who most need the bodily additions that won't get them!

SNMartha: Ten hours??? Yuk! I haven't crossed that border in recent years, but I remember nasty line-ups in the past - and that was before all the extra precautions that resulted from 9/11. That's an entire day sitting in a line-up! With a 10 month old, yet. I'm shuddering.
