Some time back a third grade teacher asked a number of questions to her students about their Mothers. Following are some of the questions and the kid's answers.

1. How did God make Mothers?

-Well, I think he used dirt just like everyone else, except for moms, he used the clean dirt.

-He used a lot of magic and gave her super powers.

2. Why did God make Mothers?

-To wake Dad up each morning and tell him to go to work or else.

-To help me find scotch tape, scissors and stuff like that.

3. Why did God give you your Mother and not someone else's?

-'Cuz we were related.

-I don't think anyone would take me. I get in trouble a lot.

4. What ingredients did God use to make your Mom?

-He used angel hair, soft clouds, pretty colors and everything nice in the world......AND ONE DAB OF MEAN!

5. Why do you think your Mom married your Dad?

-Ya know, that's a really good question. No one knows.

-I'm not sure but Grandma says that Mommy didn't have her thinking hat on.

-She liked his last name, I think.

6. What's the difference between Mothers and Grandmothers?

-Grandmas always have candy or something in her purse and Mom just has a mess.

-About 30 or 40 years?

7. Is there anything about your Mom that's perfect?

-Her teeth are perfect, but I think the dentist gave them to her.

-Her hair is perfect, but she puts something in it to make it perfect.

-ME !

8. If you could change one thing about your Mother, what would that be?

-I'd make her smarter so she would know that it's not always me that gets into trouble.

-She has this weird thing about me always keeping my room clean. I'd stop that in a minute.

9. And finally, what's the difference between Dads and Moms?

-Dads are way stronger and taller but Moms are way smarter. Way smarter.

-My Mom knows how to talk to my teacher without scaring her half to death.

-Dad sweats a lot. Mom works harder and she never sweats. I'm gonna ask God about that.

-Dad works at work and Mom works at work. But Mom also works at home and Dad does nothing at home. I can't wait to be a Dad.
