Why God Made Moms, Part II


I asked L these questions when she was about three and a half, her answers are in red. I find it so interesting to talk to the girls and ask them questions. Their answers vary depending on their moods, what they learned in school, what they did for the day and so on. I can’t wait to go back through these when they are much older.

They are now six and a few months old.

1. Why did God make mothers?

H: For the people know how to get to school and eat and have food.

L: They made mothers to have healthy babies

To make life ( I was super impressed by this answer even though I’m not sure she realizes how wonderful this answer is).

2. How did God make mothers?

H: With a head, eyes, bones and a body

L: God made mothers with blood and bones

He made you gorgeous and pretty (seriously this kid is killing me!)

3. What ingredients are mothers made of?


L: Mothers are made of ingredients that you can make yourself out of like bone and teeth

Made of happy (she must be confused)

4. Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?

H: Because he thought you were a nice mom

L: Because he thought we were the perfect match

Because you are my Mommy (duh)

5. What kind of a little girl was your mom?

H: A girl with blond hair and peach skin

L: A girl with tan skin and behaved nice

Like Aunt Holly (what was Holly like?) She played with toys. (again duh)

6. What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?

You have to know what he liked and did (H claims she was going to say the same thing)

Would Daddy marry you? (Logically)

7. Why did your mom marry your dad?

H: Because a wife has to marry a husband. Because he picks his nose. *Giggle giggle* And he looked handsome.

L: Because you have the same color hair, and he loves to cook with you (I don’t cook)

Because he loved you (sweet little girl)

8. Who’s the boss at your house?

H: Mommy and daddy

L: Mommy and Daddy

(What does the boss do)- tells the kids what to do and gives the kids chores. (Steve yells ok then Mommys the boss)

H- daddy just says go to your room and pick your nose and help me build.

L- the boss tells you to get dressed in the morning and get ready for school

Daddy and Mommy (you got that half right)

9. What’s the difference between moms and dads?

H: Dads like to do boy stuff (building, playing basketball, football, soccer, baseball) and mommies like to do girl stuff.

Me: But girls play all that stuff too

H: but that’s ok it’s still boy stuff. Also boys have nipples and girls have boobs. (I’ll leave that one alone for now)

L: You guys are different because ones a boy and ones a girl.

I don’t know that one Mommy (I believe you since you think we are twins like you and H)

10. What does your mom do in her spare time?

H: Do art projects

L: you spend time with your girls

Mommy goes to the Market (fancy Mommy I am)

11. What would it take to make your mom perfect?

H: you are perfect because you always tuck me in all the time

L: anything that would make me more perfect? Just come to my recitalJ (Always)

Fruitshakes (that’s it! done!)

12. If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?

H: Stop spanking our butts (for the record I’m not a spanker/hitter. Last night, after a week of sickies and sleepless nights I had the babies an eye slit away from falling asleep and they came into the nursery after I told them 3 times no. I lost my patience and gave them each a whack on the butt. It didn’t hurt nor did it do any good. L was out of her bed another 2 times after. It was just one of those bad nights).

L: Stop yelling

L: Stop working on your phone esp in the car (this is only at stop lights!)

Not get mad! (and there we go LOL)
