Here’s how several elementary school students answered the following questions about moms:


Why did God make mothers?

• She’s the only one who knows where the Scotch tape is.

• Mostly to clean the house.

• To help us out of there when we were getting born.


How did God make mothers?

• He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.

• Magic, plus superpowers and a lot of stirring.

• God made my mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.


What ingredients are mothers made of?

• God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world. . .and one dab of mean.

• 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?

• We’re related.

• God knew she likes me a lot more than other people’s moms like me.


Don’t believe for one minute that children will always compliment their mom:

When first-graders were asked to complete the sentence, "My mother cooks the best . . . ," one boy supplied "that she can."
