News & Views from Campus: February 23 – February 29, 2020

Christine Broeker, Rehab Secretary, writes . . .

A group of elementary school age
children were asked the following question – Why God Made Moms?

Why did God make mothers?
1.  She’s the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2.  Mostly to clean the house.

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.

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 used string, I think.

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.

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.

Who’s the boss at your house?
1.  Mom doesn’t want to be boss, but she had 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.

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 her back.
