Hey Momma!

I would just like to wish a happy mother's day to the over 2 billion moms on this planet!  Today is a celebration of one of the toughest jobs imaginable: motherhood.  In honor of these strong and courageous women, here are some fun facts about mother:

  • The oldest woman ever to become a mom was Rosanna Corte, who gave birth to a baby boy at the age of 63!
  • Mother's Day is the busiest day for the phone lines, totaling about 122.5 million phone calls.
  • Between 1725 and 1765, a Russian woman by the name of Feodor Vassilyev gave birth to 69 children and set the record for most births given by a single woman! 
  • A solo mom changes about 7,000 diapers by the child's second birthday - averaging close to 10 changes per day!

Will Ferrell once elegantly sang words that truly describe the love we all feel for our mothers: "I love the way you be, you be a big ole’ mommy.  I wanna cover you in super glue and roll you in flowers."
