Mother's Day Jokes 

Expecting a baby

For weeks a six-year-old lad kept
telling his first-grade teacher about the baby brother or sister that
was expected at his house.


One day the mother allowed the boy to feel the movements of the unborn
child. The six-year old was obviously impressed, but made no comment.
Furthermore, he stopped telling his teacher about the impending event.


The teacher finally sat the boy on her lap and said, "Tommy, whatever
has become of that baby brother or sister you were expecting at home?"


Tommy burst into tears and confessed, "I think Mommy ate it!"

"A Mother is like a flower

On a sunny summer day.

You'd pick her in a minute

If you could have your way.



A Mother is like the sunshine;

She warms your heart each day

And makes you feel like smiling.

It's just her special way."
