For Better or For Worse: Where Do Monkeys Come From?

This summer, our children have been on a bit of a banana binge.  For some reason, they cannot seem to get enough bananas, whether they eat them plain, cut up in yogurt, or in an ice cream sundae.  They would barely be finished with one banana before they would ask for another.

In an attempt to teach our children moderation, my husband decided to let our children in on a little secret.  As our children listened intently, he told them where monkeys come from.  He did so by explaining to them that monkeys were really once little children who made the mistake of eating two bananas in one sitting.

I'm not sure our children believed my husband's story, but to this day, they have yet to ask for a second banana again.  Perhaps they think it's better to play it safe just in case?
