I was out walking with my 3 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, "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.
