Now I know you're not all mums, but think about it, Is this what you thought about your mum when you were little? Why God Made Mums 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 Mum just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts. What images are mothers made of? 1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice 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 & not some other mum? 1. We're related. 2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's mums like me. What kind of little girl was your mum? 1. My mum has always been my mum 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 mum 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 mum marry your dad? 1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my mum eats a lot. 2. She got too old to do anything else with him. 3. My grandma says that Mum didn't have her thinking cap on. Who's the boss at your house? 1. Mum doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball. 2. Mum. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed. 3. I guess Mum is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad. What's the difference between mums & dads? 1. Mums work at work and work at home & dads just go to work at work. 2. Mums know how to talk to teachers without scaring them. 3. Dads are taller & stronger, but mums have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's. 4. Mums have magic, they make you feel better without medicine. What does your mum 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 mum 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 Mum, 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 Mum 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. WHEN you STOP LAUGHING - SEND IT ON TO OTHER MOTHERS, AUNTS, GRANDMOTHERS and anyone else who has anything to do with kids or just needs a good laugh!! It is no wonder that mothers need all the help they can get sometimes, and so resort to prayer.

They certainly can be cute and also embarrassing but guess what ausnikki - one day they will have children too or at least I hope that they all do. Then it will be our turn. LOL

Children say some of the cutest things. It is really interesting some of the things that come out of their mouths. I have always gotten a kick out things that I hear children say, but sometimes they can really embarrass you with the things they say.

So very true caribe that they can say the cutest things, but sometimes also very embarassing. Thanks for reading this and I am pleased that you enjoyed it. :)

Out of the mouths of babes is what I think caramello. Of course there is always the "cringe factor" when we realise this is what children do think. LOL

Darn my invisible eyes in the back of my head are all worn out so cannot send them to you twistedvanilla. Terrible when the kids get taller than us isn't it? Our son has been patting me on the head since he was about 12 years old. I am glad that you read and got a laugh from this one. :)

I'd get rid of that. My Grandchildren would do this one if they could. a great discussion and thanks for a good laugh, ossi

Children really are adorable sometimes and their answers to such questions are funny. I know where you are coming from with your grandchildren and keeping their room clean because that was our son too. However I do have to say that if Grandma was coming for a visit, then he made sure his bedroom was spotless. LOL Thanks for reading and responding deebomb. :)

Children can always be relied upon for a good laugh ,i think thats one reason we love our grandchildren so much we have more time to listen to all the funny little things they say

I agree that as we get older and our children are grown, we do have more time to really listen to what children say. That doesn't mean we ignored what our own children said, but now we can really listed and see the humour in it. :)

You can certainly say that and also at times they can be just so embarrassing with their honest and open appraisals of certain situations. :)

Thats really beautiful ossie. I took a print out of this so that I can add it to my reference file. I think I'd take these questions to my two kids and see how they'd answer. I will let you know the results. Have a nice day and take care.

I shall definately be interested in what your children have to say about these Sherinek and let's both hope there aren't too many shocks in their answers. :)

Kids can be so cute, if only they didn't embarrass us so much their their total lack of guile. :)
