The Mom Test

The Mom Test...
I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up something offthe ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from herand 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'sdirty, and probably has germs” I replied. At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, “Momma, how do you know all this stuff, you are so smart.”
I was thinking quickly. “All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mom Test. Youhave to know it, or they don't let you be a Mom.” We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidentlypondering this new information. “OH...I get it!” she beamed, “So if youdon't pass the test you have to be the dad.” “Exactly” I replied back with a big smile on my face. When you're finished laughing, share this with another Mom. J
