Happy Mother's Day

The Mom Test

I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.

'Why?' my daughter asked.

'Because it's been on the ground, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty, and it probably has germs all over it,' I replied.

At this point, my daughter looked at me in total admiration and asked, 'Momma, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.'

I was thinking quickly and told her, 'All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mom Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mom.'

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, and it was evident that she was pondering this new information.

'Oh, I get it!' she finally beamed, 'So if you don't pass the test you have to be the Dad.'

'Exacty', I replied back with a big smile on my face.
