I just got this fun email from a friend that asked 2nd graders questions about their Mothers. It was cute reading their answers and so even though my kids are a bit younger I still thought it would be interesting to hear their answers! I'm not sure how I feel about some of their answers though! :)
WHY DID GOD MAKE MOTHERS?
Eric: Because I need a mom. If I didn't have a mommy, I'd be alone. (Alex argues: You'd have a dad.)
Alex:Because Mommy, Jesus of the Christ make you happy.
HOW DID GOD MAKE MOTHERS?
Eric: Putting blood, bones and a spirit in Mommy's body so she can run, walk and be a mom. And can only die when she's old.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE MOTHERS MADE OF?
WHY DID GOD GIVE YOU YOUR MOTHER AND NOT SOME OTHER MOM?
Eric: Because I was your baby and you did have me.
Alex: And not another daddy? Because Dad love you.
WHAT KIND OF A LITTLE GIRL WAS YOUR MOM?
Eric: Like Lisa. (my sister) You have the same hair as Lisa.
Alex: A little, little girl
WHAT DID MOM NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DAD BEFORE SHE MARRIED HIM?
Eric: I don't think you needed to know anything.
Alex: I don't know dat!
WHY DID YOUR MOM MARRY YOUR DAD?
Eric: You thinked he was handsome and he thinked you were pretty and you thinked you should marry him.
Alex: Because daddy just married you because...I don't know. This really hard.
WHO'S THE BOSS AT YOUR HOUSE?
Eric: My mom and dad. Who's the real boss? Daddy because he's big enough. You're kinda the same height but he's 12 and you're 14.
Alex: Mommy and Daddy.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOMS AND DADS?
Eric: I don't know
Alex: When you are fighting?
WHAT DOES YOUR MOM DO IN HER SPARE TIME?
WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO MAKE YOUR MOM PERFECT?
Eric: To be pretty or beautiful. You are beautiful and pretty all the time.
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT YOUR MOMMY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Eric: Change your hair to be curly like ice cream.
Alex: umm...a dress?
Gotta love children!! :)
