In May, we celebrate Mother's Day. Join Mike Farris, President of the Home School Legal Defense Association, as he gets a child's perspective, today on Home School Heartbeat.

    Michael Farris:
    Nathan, Jordan, welcome to the program.

    Nathan:
    Hi.

    Jordan:
    Hi.

    Mike:
    Now, you guys are twins, right?

    Nathan and Jordan:
    Yes.

    Mike:
    Both of you?

    Nathan and Jordan:
    Uh-huh.

    Mike:
    All right, good. And you both have the same mom?

    Nathan and Jordan:
    Yeah.

    Mike:
    Okay, is your mom kind of a cool lady?

    Nathan and Jordan:
    Yes.

    Mike:
    Tell us about your mom.

    Nathan and Jordan:
    I don't know much about her.

    Mike:
    Good morning, Emily.

    Emily:
    Good morning.

    Mike:
    How old are you, Emily?

    Emily:
    Eight.

    Mike:
    And tell us about your mommy. What's she like?

    Emily:
    She teaches us school, and she loves our family, and she takes good care of us.

    Mike:
    How old are you right now, Joe?

    Joe:
    Five.

    Mike:
    And do you have a mommy?

    Joe:
    Yeah.

    Mike:
    What do you call her?

    Joe:
    Mom.

    Mike:
    Do you like your mom?

    Joe:
    Yeah.

    Mike:
    Why?

    Joe:
    Because she just loves me.

    Mike:
    What do we do on Mother's Day?

    Joe:
    We give Mom presents.

    Mike:
    What do you think you're going to give her this year?

    Joe:
    I think a ring.

    Mike:
    A ring? What kind of ring? A big diamond ring?

    Joe:
    Yeah.

    Mike:
    Seth, how old are you right now?

    Seth:
    Five.

    Mike:
    Is Mom pretty special?

    Seth:
    Yes.

    Mike:
    Do you think she loves you?

    Seth:
    Yes.

    Mike:
    Why do you think that?

    Seth:
    Well, because I know.

    You know that.

    Yeah, I know she does.
