My 4-year-old daughter picked something up off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I asked her not to do that, and she asked why.
“You don’t know where it’s been, and it probably has germs on it,” I replied.
My daughter said, “Mommy, how do you know this, you are so smart.”
Thinking quickly, I told her “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.”
“I get it!” she beamed, “If you don’t pass the test you’ll be the Daddy.”
