A mother was asked by a neighbor, “Do you do any literary work?”

“Oh, yes,” replied the mother, “I’m writing two books.”

“What are their titles?” asked the surprised neighbor.

Replied the mother, “John and Mary. My business is to write on the mind and heart of my children the lessons they will never forget.”
