In search of a good laugh....

Or atleast a smile!
So I went searching in my email to a folder I keep called "funnies"...you know, those emails people forward that get you giggling or gut-wrenching belly laughing. I keep some of them for nights like this. I thought this one was cute and made me giggle..then I went to Shari's blog and laughed right out loud!!

These are answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:
REVISED::: **** The answers in red are from my Hannah about me ***
       ****The answers in blue are from my Isaiah about me (keep in mind he's 3)***

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.
4. Take care of us
5.  Because them love you

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.
4. Breathed through his mouth
5.  With toys

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.
3. I think it's skin and eyeballs.
4.  Umm..I think with pears

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.
3. Because she loves me
4. because she was having a baby

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.
4. A human
5.  teeny weeny

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 t o drugs and YES to chores?
4. She needed to meet him
5.  kiss

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.
4. Because she liked him
5.  because she loved him

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.
4. Mom and dad. Both. But dad's bigger
5.  Mom

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 friend's.
4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.
5. Dad's are taller than mom's
6.  daddy's don't have things (???)

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.
3. someone visits and mom talks
4.  prays

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.
3. If she had Jesus in her heart! (HAHA!!!)
4.  put weight on (gotta love kids!!!)

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 the back of her head.
4. Make her wear dresses! (LOL!)
5.  things (typical male)

I really like his one...so funny to see it all from the perspective of our children....i wonder how Jianna or Hannah would answer these same questions.

Jen said...

Amy,
I did a post liking to yours and asked Jianna all these questions, without giving her any of the original answers...maybe you should try it out on Hannah too.
Put on your thick skin first though...I got one big ouch and another 1 or 2, I am not sure about.

Mostly they were funny...or the fact that she was so serious about her answers made them funny.

Mona said...

My Favourite was what ingredients were used to make a mother.
"and A little dab of mean"
Too funny.

Rhonda said...

LOVE the revised version! Great idea to ask your kids what they thought. You'll have to do it in another couple years with Alia.

Thanks for sharing the smiles!

Jen said...

Oh Amy!
Knowing our kids and seeing their answers...way funnier than the originals!
Isaiah is SUCH a BOY!!! "Things"! LOL!!!
