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!

"The Mom Test"--oh, don't i wish! I want humankind to have completely reversible sterilization procedures, one each for male and female, compulsory at the medically optimal age, and then make everyone take a RIGOROUS test to get the procedure reversed. That won't happen, but we could at least make Parenting Skills a required course for all middle school students. There are still adults hitting children, of all things!

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
