The Mommy 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 do that.
"Why?" my daughter asked.
"Because it's been laying outside, 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, "Wow!
How do you know all this stuff?"
"Uh," I was thinking quickly, "all
moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it,
or they don't let you be
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 daddy."
"Exactly" I replied back with a big
smile on my face and joy in me heart.
