A two-year-old's doctrine of creation

A recent conversation between my two daughters (aged 4 and 2):

Older sister: Do you know where animals come from?
Younger sister: From the Ark.
Older sister: (Laughter) No, God made the animals.
Younger sister: No he didn’t. Noah made them.

the younger were in a way right:
God created animals, but man named them

may Christ light always your angels

Ben, your post reminded me of my 2yo daughter a couple of days ago, echoing a Colin Buchanan song and a love of fruit:

"10, 9, 8... God is grapes!"
