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 hand I asked her not to do that.

“Why?” my daughter asked.

“Because it’s been on the ground, and 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 Mommy Test. 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 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.

When you’re finished laughing, send this to a Mom and make her day!
