The Mommy Test

We all get those emails that pop into our mailboxes every day that have been forwarded a bijillion times. I skim over them and some I delete but a few jump out at me as being really cute or funny. Some, like the following one, is true. Enjoy:

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 lying outside, 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, "Wow! How do you know all this stuff?"

"Uh," ...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 and joy in my heart.

Hi Mary,
I'll try to get a chattie box on here soon.. and other fun stuff too. Miss Jess is miserable, two of my boys are coughing machines, Austin had a pretty major asthma attack and I just haven't had a chance to work on my FUN blog. Hopefully soon!
