12 Questions Every Mom Should Ask Her Kids

             Hey Supermom,   got time for a good momma-to-momma laugh? I found these real answers of school age kids on an email (but unfortunately don’t know where to give credit where it’s due).

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 moms like me.

What kind of 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 & work at home, & dads just go to work at work.
2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller & stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.
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 and not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on her back.

           As soon as I got done rolling off the floor laughing, I decided to interview my children with the same dozen questions. For the most part, the Catechism answers deserve an “A”.  Kudos to the Religion teacher. (Ahem.)   They also replied with appropriate awww comments like, “Mom married dad because he’d make a great daddy,” and “God gave my momma to me cause she’s the best mom.”  But when interrogated further, their brutal honesty had self-knowledge seeping up like a fever under my collar.   (Moms don't try this at home unless you're ready with humility.) When I asked who the boss was of the house, my 4 year old says,  “It’s Dad.  Right, Mom?” and when asked what would make momma perfect, my 6 year old says, “Patience.”
            And finally, to the question:  If you could change one thing about Mom, what would it be? Here are the answers:
               1.  “I’d make her walk fast so she wouldn’t be late for anything.”  --E, 6
               2. “I wish she’d get off the computer.” – M, 4
               That’s my cue to blog-off.   Hope you fare better on your interview.
