Kids Say the Darndest Things!

In honor of Mother’s Day this year, we asked some kids a few questions about their moms.

When we asked what their moms do during the day, we found the kids seem to have a pretty good handle on their moms’ schedules:

  • “She works and teaches kids.”
  • “She works.”
  • “She sits and reads and goes to the YMCA and buys stuff.”
  • “She washes the dishes, feeds the cat, works on our food.”
  • “She makes sure the house is clean so that when Daddy comes home he can say, “Wow, the house looks good!”

We gave the kids the option to answer the next question in one of two ways: Describe a mom or tell me what you will do when you are a mom.

  • “I will stay home with my kids. Treat my kids awesome – I will be awesome.”
  • “I’m gonna be a babysitter. Where’s a babysitter store? I can work there and help doctors and other babysitters and customers. I want to be a helper.”
  • “Mommies are workers and they love babies”
  • “She reads stories to us and snuggles us and takes us places where we need to go and takes care of us.”

What is the best thing about your mom?

  • “She hugs me”
  • “Her snuggles in the morning”
  • “That she’s pretty and makes cheese tacos”
  • “She’s cute”
  • “I like her dresses, her pink dress, and the beautiful dresses and earrings and necklaces she bought me. I like playing doctor with her.”

The last question: What would you change about your mom?

  • “I wish she was taller.”
  • “I wish she would cook at a restaurant.”
  • “I wouldn’t change anything about her!!”
  • “I don’t want her to be different.”
  • “I wouldn’t want her to ever be sad”
  • “Her clothes… to dresses with snowflakes and stars and rainbow colors.”

I think we would all agree a few snowflakes, stars and rainbows would be awesome!

Moms, you are loved and valued. Thank you to all the moms out there for all you do!
