The following are answers by elementary school-age children to various questions about their Mom:

 

Why did God make mothers?

1. She’s the only one who knows where the Scotch Tape is.

2. Think about it. It was the best way to get more people.

3. Mostly to clean the house.

How did God make mothers?

1. He used dirt, jut like for the rest of us.

2. Magic, plus super powers and a lot of stirring.

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

1. We are related.

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.
