The Momma Test

I was out walking with my 3-year-old son. He picked up something off of the ground and started to put it in his mouth. I took the item away from him and I asked him not to do that. 'Why?' he 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 son looked at me with total admiration and asked, 'Mama, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.' I was thinking quickly.. 'All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mama Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mama.'


We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but he was evidently pondering this new information. 'Oh.....I get it!' he beamed, 'So if you don't pass the test you have to be the dad.'


*(This was not an actual conversation between Tyler and myself, it was an e-mail forward, but I loved it so much I just had to post it!)

You're too young to remember, but Art Linkletter did a segment on his TV show - back in the dark ages of TV, where he asked kids the easiest questions and they always came back like Tyler!
