Maia's Version of The Story

Me: So, Maia, what did you learn in your church class today?
Maia: We learned about the snake.
Me: What about the snake?
Maia: The sneaky snake told Eve to eat the fruit, but God told Eve not to eat the fruit. But, Eve was naughty and ate the fruit. She didn't obey.
Me: And what happened to her because she didn't obey God?
Maia: She got a pretty dress.
Me: She got a pretty dress?
Maia: Yeah. At the beginning, she didn't have clothes, but after she ate the fruit she got a pretty dress. It didn't have sparkles though.

Later in the day, I asked Noah about the story. I hoped that he could help Maia understand it a little better...

Noah: Yeah Eve pointed at the sneaky snake and Adam pointed at Eve.
Me: Oh, so they were blaming others for their bad choices?
Noah: Uh huh. They were not supposed to eat the fruit from that one tree. There was lots of other trees and God said, "You can eat the fruit from all the other trees, but not that one." But, they didn't obey. The sneaky snake made Eve eat the fruit.
Me: They didn't obey God right? They ate the fruit from the tree that they were told not to eat from.
Maia: Yeah, they're not supposed to do that 'cuz it's dirty. They're supposed to wash the fruit first because it's dirty since it grows from the ground!

Good to know that my daughter is comprehending the profound truths found in Scripture...ay yaiy yaiy...
