Can we see ourselves in these children's eyes?

Enjoy the answers given by elementary
school age children to the following questions:


Why did God make mothers?

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

Mostly to clean the house.

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

How did God make mothers?



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

Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.

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

What ingredients are mothers made of?



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

They had to get their start from men's bones.
Then they mostly use string. I think.

Why did God give you your mother
and not some other mom?



We're related.

God knew she likes me a lot more
than other people's moms like me.

What kind of little girl was your mom?



My mom has always been my mom
and none of that other stuff.

I don't know because I wasn't there,
but my guess would be pretty bossy.

They say she used to be nice.

What did mom need to know about
dad before she married him?



His last name.

She had to know his background.
Like is he a crook? Does he get
drunk on beer? Does he make at
least $800 a year? Did he say NO
to drugs and YES to chores.

Why did your mom marry your dad?


My dad makes the best spaghetti in the
world. And my mom eats a lot.

She got too old to do anything else with him.

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

Who's the boss at your house?



Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she
has to because dad's such a goofball.

Mom. You can tell by room inspection.
She sees the stuff under the bed.

I guess Mom is, but only because
she has a lot more to do than dad.

What's the difference between moms and dads?



Moms work at work and work at home,
and dads just got to work at work.

Moms know how to talk to
teachers without scaring them.

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 friend's.

What does your mom do in her spare time?



Mothers don't do spare time.
To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

What would it take to make your mom perfect?



On the inside she's already perfect.
Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.

Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about
your mom, what would it be?



She has this weird thing about me keeping
my room clean. I'd get rid of that.

I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know
it was my sister who did it and not me.
