5 Marvelous Mother’s Day Moms

In the United States, Mother’s Day has been celebrated on the second Sunday in May (in 2012, this date falls on May 12th) since it was made an official U.S. holiday in 1914.

“Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs… since the payment is pure love.”
—–Mildred B. Vermont

Everybody’s mother is special, but some moms are a bit more special than others. For your enjoyment, here are 5 Marvelous Mother’s Day Moms for you. Now go outside and play, wipe your feet when you come in the house, do you call those ears clean?, go ask your father, and don’t forget to call your mother.

Oldest Mom: According to the Guiness Book of World Records, that would be Maria del Carmen Bousada Lara, an unmarried Spanish woman who lied about her age to receive IVF treatment in America when she failed to qualify in her native country. She was a week shy of her 67th birthday when her twin sons were born by Cesarean section in Barcelona.

Mom Who Had the Most Children: Hold onto your hats – the record goes to the wife of Russian peasant Feodor Vassilyev in the 18th century. In the period between 1725-1765, she gave birth to 4 sets of quadruplets, 7 sets of triplets, and 16 sets of twins for a total of 69 children! By that standard, Feodor’s second wife was a slacker – she only had 6 sets of twins and 2 sets of triplets.

Youngest Mom: Likely suffering from a rare condition called extreme precocious puberty, Lina Medina of Peru gave birth to a son by Cesarean section at the age of 5 years, 7 months, and 17 days in 1939. The father remains unknown. She still lives in Lima, Peru.

Extremely Brave Mom: In 2006 in Brooklyn, New York, the second-story apartment of Nabila Nazli caught fire. After calling for help from a window, she dropped her month old baby into a makeshift net held by neighbors, followed by his twin brother and her two older children. When her fifth child, a 5-year old daughter, refused to jump, Nazli remained in the blazing apartment with her until fire fighters arrived to rescue them.

Insanely Brave Mom: Inéz Ramírez Pérez performed a successful Cesarean section on herself in 2000 – the only known woman to do so in history. A peasant living in a cabin in rural Mexico, she was alone when her labor started. She had previously given birth to 8 children, of whom 7 survived. Lacking a phone, and fearing her newest child would succumb like the last to fetal death in labor, she decided to operate on herself with a knife. Both mother and child survived.
