The Mom Test

*note: this was not something MY daughter said, but was just something forwarded to me in an email that i wanted to pass along :)


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,
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, '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!

i'm definitely sure she'll change her mind about the 10 kids thing lol

LMAO!! Too funny. I asked my daughter what she wanted to be when she grew up when she was 3 years old. She said quite proudly "daddy" I was hurt(and we were pretty happy in our marriage then) a little but it was cute. She has since decided it would be better to be a mommy though and proclaims she wants to have 10 kids and be a mommy like me. Kids and their silliness.

LOVE your story-- have to tell it to my hubby!!!

aww lol

oh she didn't say was just forwarded to me in an email...i thought it was funny :D lol
