Why God Made Moms

My aunt recently sent me an email about the funny answers 2nd graders gave to questions about their moms. I thought I would ask my own peeps the same questions.

Each kid was in a sound proof booth when I was interrogating interviewing the other one.

Ready? Go!

Why did God make mothers?

Cooper - We need them to survive and that's how children were made. To raise us. To take good care of us. To make muffins. To love on us.

Jordan - To raise children and also so people can have children. And to teach us right and wrong.

How did God make mothers?

Cooper - From dust -- wait no, out of their mommies' belly. Their mothers had babies that turned into moms.

Jordan -, Eve? How He made Eve? What exactly do you mean?

What ingredients are mothers made of ?

Cooper - Love, cherish, beautifulness, sweetness ( sweet was that? And beautifulness too. Sweet.)

Jordan - Skin, bones, nerves, tissue.... (ok, girl pays too much attention in science)

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

- She would think that God thinks that my mom would be the best mother on the planet for me to live with. You are the only one who would squish me until I couldn't breathe.

Jordan - Because she rocks more than other mothers. (Awwwww!)

What kind of little girl was your mom?

Cooper - A loving, cherish little girl (there's that cherish word again) Sort of a mean girl, sort of a nice girl. Probably a bully.

Jordan - Really nerdy and dorky and looked like a banana.

(Side Note - ONE of my kids was much closer than the other kid. Just sayin'.)

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

Cooper - Was he nice or was he a robber? Did she know if that was the right guy? Was that the guy she wanted to marry or was there another guy? Was he going to give her a ring?

Jordan - If he was nice or not and if he had hair all over his body.

Why did your mom marry your dad?

Cooper - She thought he was a charmer. And a charming man. And cause he gave her a ring.

- She thought he was hot. (Hubba hubba)

Who's the boss at your house?

Cooper - Daddy because this is his house.

- Mommy.

What's the difference between moms & dads?

Cooper - A mom is a girl and a dad is a boy. Oh, and one has long hair and one has short hair.

Jordan - Welllllll..... (probably should have skipped this question for her.....)

What does your mom do in her spare time?

Cooper - Plays with her children, loves her children and makes food for her children.

Jordan - Cleans the house and cooks.

What would it take to make your mom perfect?

Cooper - A crown and all the things kings have. Maybe a limo too. (I *love* the way that kid thinks!)

Jordan - If she could get the Jonas Brothers to move in with us.

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

Cooper - Get her to buy us 10,000 dogs.

Jordan - If we could have more dogs.

(Remember, they weren't together when they answered the questions. So I'm not too sure where these dog comments are coming from. But at least they didn't answer something like "Lose 10 pounds.")

Honestly people, some of these answers made me laugh out loud. Those kids can be total crack ups.
