A Reason for Everything, As Explained by a (Near) 4-Year-Old!

 Myla randomly explained to me today the difference between boys and girls... and why we have mommies and daddies! (How intuitive!) Her theory is that daddies are alive to cook food for their girls, and mommies are here to clean up all the dishes!! Gotta love it! I also happened to read a forwarded email that contained the following... Very cute. Must share:


Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:

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 mom like me.

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

WHIDFML: Went to bed a little earlier.... Fighting my night-owl instincts is hard - but I feel much better the next A.M. when dual twinkle-toes find their way about my bed-side. ;)
