Although you're not their mother
You care for them each day.
You cuddle, sing and read to them
And watch them as they play
You see each new accomplishment
You help them grow and learn,
You understand their language,
You listen with concern
They come to you for comfort,
And you kiss away their tears.
They proudly show their work to you
You give the loudest cheers!
No, you are not their mothers,
But your role is just as strong.
You nurture them and keep them safe
Though maybe not for long-
You know someday the time may come
That they will part
And they will have you in their heart.

Things You Can Learn From Having Children

Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke.....lots of it.

A six-year old can start a fire with a flint rock even though a forty-year old man says that can only be done in the movies.

If you spray furniture polish on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

A four-year olds voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant./
If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing a superman cape.

It is strong enough, however, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20 by 20-foot room.

Baseballs make marks on ceilings.

When using the ceiling fan as a bat you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit.

A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

The glass in windows, even double pane, does not stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

A magnifying glass can start a fire even on an overcast day.

If you use a waterbed as home plate while wearing baseball cleats, it does not leak...it explodes.

A king size waterbed holds enough water
to fill a 2000 square foot house four inches deep.

Lego’s will pass through the digestive tract of a four-year old.

Duplo blocks will not.

PlayDough and microwave should never be used in the same sentence.

Superglue is forever.

McGuyver can teach us many things we don't want to know.

Ditto Tarzan.

No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool, you still can't walk on water.

Pool filters don't like Jell-O.

VCR's do not eject peanut butter and jelly sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

Neither does embroidered bedsheets.

Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

Always look in the oven before you turn it on.

Plastic toys do not like ovens.

Always look in the dryer before using it.

A four-year old can break an arm in a rotating dryer.

The fire department in our city has a response time of at least five minutes.

The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

It will, however, make cats dizzy.

Cats throw up two times their body weight when dizzy.

Quiet does not necessarily mean there is nothing wrong.

"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.

--Howard Johnson (c. 1915)
