Being a Christian in today's world is very hard. But do not let that scare you, anything worthwhile is worth working for. Being a Christian can be hard but it can also be fun. That is my objective, through my own stories, stories of my friends and a lot of plagiarism (Just kidding, only a little plagiarism.), I am going to show that you can be a Christian and still have fun!

  My wife is as pretty as McDonald's.

There are thousands of them out there, you know internet jokes about teachers asking their kids questions that everyone knows the answers to, except the kids. Like the one where the kids are give the first part of an old saying and they have to finish it. For example, teacher -
A penny saved is... Student - Not much. You can lead a horse to water...But how. These are the only ones I can remember.

Anyway, when I get home from work today my wife, beaming with pride, hands me a sheet of paper to read. She said, "Read this it is what your youngest son wrote about me today." (Actually the teacher wrote it, he just told he what to write.) I thought some of the answers are down right funny so I thought I would share.

My Mom is Special!!
(I will put Zach's response in red, remember he is only four. )

My Mom's name is: It starts with M. I guess he was thinking Mom and not Sheila.

She is special because: She goes to Disney World.

I like it when my mom: Plays with me.

My mom can do many things! I think she's best at: her work. Just for the record my wife's job is a homemaker, I guess that is what he is talking about.

My mom has a pretty smile! I like to make her smile by: playing with her.

My mom is pretty as: McDonald's. I will be nice about this one but let me just say I have a million comments about this one but I want to live to see my forty first birthday.

My Mom is smart! She even knows: How to do everything. Now you see this one is true, just ask my wife she will tell you she knows everything. hehe See, now I am going to get smacked for that comment.

I'd like to tell my Mom: I want to see Thomas. Thomas the Tank Engine. This kid just LOVES trains.

I hope yall enjoyed this as much as I did. Except for the smack in the back of the head. One day I am going to learn to keep my mouth shut. You would think my wife would be used to it after twenty years of marriage. Oh well I hope yall have a great Mother's Day.

God bless, Joe B

PS. My wife REALLY is as pretty as McDonald's.

What a sweet heart. I love reading and hearing the cute things kids say.
I even have one to share. My daughter in her late 40's was bending over in her garden and her 4 year old granddaughter saw her face, which was showing a few more wrinkles and folds than usual.
She said, "Grandma, you're growing a new face."
Lol I love it!

It makes me miss my kids as small children. Teens would never think I was as good as Micky D's.

Just be good to her on Mother's Day, in spite of the slap on the back of the head.

Those are great! Too cute.
I feel your pain with the smacks on the back of your head. As soon as mine start to feel better, I say something else.
