Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there! It is definitely the toughest job out there! I am so blessed to have (in my opinion) the BEST mom on earth! I LOVE MY MOM!! I have no idea how she managed to have 13 kids without spending a few days in the mental hospital. She NEVER ceases to amaze me. She can work circles around people! She would give you the shirt off her back! I just don't know that I have ever met someone with more charity toward EVERYONE!! John has said a time or two that he thought he was marrying someone like my mom, but instead he married my dad. Let's just say....Dad and I have a little more fight in us! Ha ha!

Can I just say that I love being a mother! My kids are so great! Yes, they are not perfect, and there are days that I want to kick their ever-lovin-butts. But, I STILL LOVE THEM!!

Last year I gave my kids a quiz about mothers. I found another quiz about mothers and thought I would see what my kids had to say. I had to bite my cheek not to laugh during some of their answers.

That quiz is hilarious. Great idea. It is so smart to hold onto those things, or put them on your blog so you don't forget.
Your mom is pretty amazing, and I think it's funny that John said he married your dad. I just think your mom set the bar too high, so what can the rest of us do?
I wish we were in Idaho on Sundays so we could have watched the Amazing Race together.
