Why God Made Moms

This is my mom. Hard to believe that she is 70. Looks pretty good for her age! When I was a kid, I always looked at her and compared her to ther moms. I though we had lucked out, after all she was small, "skinny" and kinda pretty. I remember Miss Brownjohn, my garde 2 taecher asking me why I thought my mom was the "best" mom. My answer, "cause she likes to have lots of babies". I also remember coming home from school right around that age, looking at mom and asking her if she was having another baby, 'cause her belly was getting big again. Ooops, not a good thing to say to a woman who is NOT pregnant. Anyways, these memories came flooding back when I was reading the following. Enjoy!

BRILLIANT Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions!!

3. My grandma says that Mom didn't have her thinking cap on.

Who's the boss at your house?
1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.
2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.
3. I guess Mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

What's the difference between moms & dads?
1. Moms work at work and work at home & dads just go to work at work.
2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller & stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.
4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.

What does your mom do in her spare time?
1. Mothers don't do spare time.
2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

What would it take to make your mom perfect?
1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.
2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about your Mom, what would it be?
1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.
2. I'd make my Mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it and not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

So the question then becomes, what funny things did your kids say about you when they were little or what do you remeber saying about your own mom?

    One day Spencer (who was about 5 at the time) asked me something and I said that I didn't know what the answer was. He said "yes you do, you know everything."

    ...now he doesn't think I know anything LOL!

    Jenn - your mom may not have been an old fart when you were young, but she is now! (As are the rest of us!)
