Why did God make moms?

I received an email where a school had asked these questions to a class. I decided to ask my own children and this is what they had to say:

Why did God Make mothers:
Trevor: to have little babies and to take care of them.
Brittany: to have babies, give nourishment, to teach them not to disobey.
How ingredients did God use to make mothers:
Trevor: love, joy, and he mixed it up and put a little bit a peace and then made momma.
Brittany: sugar and spice and everything nice
Why did God give you your mommy:
Trevor: because he thought I would be a good son to her.
Brittany: because he thought she was the best mommy for me.
What did your mom need to know about your Dad before she married him:
Trevor: to know he was a good man and to know he loved Jesus and to know if he would if he loved mommy too.
Brittany: to know that he loved her even though she was not rich and that he would obey all the laws. To know that he would love his children and take care of them.
Why did they get married:
Trevor: because he loved her and she loved him.
Brittany: because they loved each other and they knew they loved each other even though they were not rich.(there is that rich word again) ;)
Who is the boss in your house:
Trevor: the oldest, which is mommy. And Daddy is boss too sometimes.
Brittany: Daddy, because he is the strongest and he would do anything to protect his family.
What is the difference between your mom and dad:
Trevor: one is a boy and one is a girl. One can reach the top shelf and one can't. They don't eat the same things. They are not twins, they fuss a lot over what to watch. They still love each other.
Brittany: one is a girl and one is a boy. One can feed her babies and one can't. (hilarious!) One can do their fingernails and the other one can't.
What does your mom do in her spare time:
Trevor: Talk to her children.
Brittany: clean house, go to granny's, take us to the park.
What would make your mom perfect:
Trevor: not take me to school every day.
Brittany: never take me to school, and go to the park more.
What would you change about your mom:
Trevor: never make us clean our rooms.
Brittany: make her hair blonde. (I have no idea !)

The doctor called me today and all of Brittany's blood work has returned to normal! Praise the Lord! They can't explain it, but we can! Thank you to everyone who has prayed for her!

Spinning round and round......

Brittany was sick alot this week. I took them all to the park on Friday because they had a weather day and was not in school. She didn't play a whole lot and she didn't climb everything like she normally does, but she did love the merry-go-round. I watched as she went over and let down that long gorgeous hair of hers (she refers to it as "golden" brown) and then it started to spin. She closed her eyes and leaned her head back and let the wind blow. And for just a little while, she was a little girl with no problems, not a care in the world, just spinning round and round..........
