The Mommy Test

THE MOMMY TEST (as forwarded to me from my friend, Lindsey)

I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter one day. She picked something up 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, "Mommy, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.

" I was thinking quickly. "All moms know this stuff. It's on the MommyTest. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy."

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 you don't pass the test you have to be the daddy." "Exactly!"
