Mom Test

This is something amusing I received in an email recently. Absolutely no slam to dads intended (my little boy's daddy is just great!), but it made me chuckle.

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.


  1. That's too cute. HOpe all is well.

  2. Thanks anyway. If you need and want a new background go to cutestblogonthe block.blogspot.com. They have some fun ones. If you need any help, let me know. Can you tell I like Pink. I liked the background because they are even my wedding colors. I heard Shawn talking about blogging to Dave. Crazy boys. If they only knew what they were missing. Just kidding. HOpe all is well.


Think before you post: Is it true? Is it helpful? Is it inspiring? Is it necessary? Is it kind? Thanks for commenting!
