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 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.
You have 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 evidently pondering this new information.
'OH..I get it!' she beamed, 'So if you don'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, send this to a Mom.
