A Little Humor for Mothers Day.

Bey Aana and Patriot

Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:
Why did God make mothers?
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.

How did God make mothers?
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.
2. 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?
1. We're related.
2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's mom like me.

What kind of a little girl was your mom?
1. My mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.
2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.
3. They say she used to be nice.

What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?
1. His last name.
2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?
3. 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?
1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my mom eats a lot
2. She got too old to do anything else with him.
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 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.
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 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. Oh my GOODNESS!! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time *giggle*. That was awesome; I'll add that I could pretty much "hear it" in addition to reading the words as I work in the elementary school setting ('course that just made me laugh harder ;o)

  2. Thanks for a good laugh. Happy Mother's Day to you.

  3. Just a quick note. I can't get to your post on the Daffodil Show, Open or Not. The post won't come up. I'll try again later.

  4. She got too old to do anything else with him? LOL. Oh, there are so many gems in this list. It's very telling. Apparently, there are a lot of men out there who don't do much around the house.

  5. Just great!!!!

  6. Loved it!
    I can't wait until my sister's little boy is old enough to answer these questions!! Heheheee!!

  7. Good one,,,,I never knew about some of these. Gave me a good giggle too.

  8. I like the one about Mom has to be the boss because Dad's such a goofball.

  9. Jen, I could hear their little voices too when I first read this. So cute.

    Arlene, A belated Happy Mother's Day to you.

    The other post was a blogger hiccup. It's not finished yet so shouldn't have been up.

    FV, belated Happy Mother's Day to you as well.

    NuzzMuzz, the too old comment tickled me as well. You're so right about the telling aspect. Looks to me like some things have not come as far as people think.

    Kate, makes me want to write a list of questions and interview some 7 and 8 year olds. It could be a very interesting read.

    Nikker, that could be very informative and a bit sneaky on your part. LOL

    Linda, you just never know what kids are gonna say. LOL

    Leah, I liked that one too but really wanted the kid to define "goofball." That could be a real lark.

  10. Give my twins a few years and I'm sure they could change a few of those answers.... Maybe not for the better either. *sigh*

    Thanks for the laugh. I hope you and all the ladies blogging had a wonderful Mothers Day!
