The origin of man …

A couple of weeks ago we were out at dinner when Ella asks out of the blue “how can you be born if you are the first person and there are no mommy or daddy?”. After expressing astonishment at her random question we told her “God made the first people, remember?” She appeared to accept our answer. Last night we were reading in one of her books about plants and seeds and spores and she asked “How do you get a seed if there are no plants yet?” I said “Well, God made the first plants” and she replied, “But HOW did HE do it?”. I told her to add it to her list of questions for God and that maybe it was magic.
