The Mommy Test

Alright friends... this post will show the true heart of the one posting. : )

I'll be honest... I do my best to treat this blog as a forum for discussion of what's most important... God!!! But this email, sent to me by my friend Holly, was too good to pass up.

Go ahead... giggle in the name of pride with me. Noone can do what we do on a daily basis quite like us. : )


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, 'Mommy, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.' 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 aMommy.'

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.
Alright... you should stop giggling now.
