Late Mom's Day Thoughts

During the Mother's Day festivities I wasn't feeling very well, but I just opened this in an email and it cracked me up. I'm sure small children didn't answer these questions, but they might have. There are some really smart little guys out there. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.


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

1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.

2.. Mostly to clean the house.

3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.

1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.

2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.

3. God made my mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.

What ingredients are mothers made of?

1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.

Why did your mom marry your dad?

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 and dads?

1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.

2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them..

3. Dads are taller and stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friends.

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 sur gery .

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 not me.

3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

WHEN YOU STOP LAUGHING -- SEND IT ON TO OTHER MOTHERS, GRANDMOTHERS, AND AUNTS.....and anyone else who has anything to do with kids or just needs a good laugh!!!


  1. LOL! These are pretty cute! I actually think these may have been some of Art Linkletter's questions to children -- some of the questions and answers seem familiar.... (yea... Art Linkletter would be "familiar" to me!) LOL!

  2. a great post for Mother's day.

    Hope things are improving for you.

  3. I am in a mess. I added some on my profile and other places. But this is the way life is. We are given a nearly perfect body and being man, think we can fix it from the start. Of course, we make lots of mistakes and smoking is one of them fostered by our government who put cigarettes in my C-rations. I guess they didn't know any better either. Which leads me to wonder what will happen to the oceans. Over fishing. Now crude oil everywhere smothering life.

  4. Aw Abe,
    It bites so hard to realize what a mess we have made with our bodies. I was told not to smoke, with a wink and a nod, and so I did. It is something I did and will have to pay for, and that is just the way it is.

  5. This is really cute...I hope things are improving for you. Have a restful weekend.
