The Mom Test

(With apologies in advance to several wonderful men/dads that I am proud to call my friends... Forgive a girl will ya? You guys DO make such easy targets...)

The Mom 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 to do that.

"Why?" my daughter asked."Because it's been on the ground. It's dirty, and it 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.
