Out of the mouth of babes ... Steve (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom goodnight "I love you so much that when you die I'm going to bury you outside my bedroom window." Brittany (age 4) had an earache and wanted a painkiller. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle.

A woman invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to her six- year-old daughter and said, "Would you like to say the blessing, darling?" I wouldn't know what to say," she replied.

A three-year-old boy went with his dad to see a new litter of kittens. On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother "There were two boy kittens and two girl kittens." "How did you know that?" his mother asked. "Daddy picked them up and looked underneath," he replied. "I think it's printed on the bottom."
Why did God make mothers? So they could multiply. As helpers to dads. So kids could have someone to love. If there were no moms, then no one would love us (except dads) and I wouldn’t be born. How did God make mothers? By power. He just made them.
What is the difference between moms and grandmas? Grandmas are old, pruney people, but moms are smooth and don’t have a lot of lines. Grandmas can barely walk, moms can run.
