The Mommy Test

I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. 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 it 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.
