I was walking with my daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and asked her not to do that. 'Why?' she asked. Because it's been on the ground; it's dirty, and has germs,'I replied. She looked at me with total admiration and asked, 'How do you know all this stuff? You are so smart. ' I replied, '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, as she was pondering this new information. 'I get it!' she beamed, 'If you don't pass the test you have to be the daddy..' 'Exactly,' I replied.
