The Mom Test

Ok, so this isn't a story of mine, but it could be the story of my life and it is just too cute not to share....

The Mom Test

I was out walking with my 5 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 said with a smile.
