For all the moms out there

My sister sent me this:

I was out walking with my 4-year-old daughter..
She picked up something off of 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,
'Mama, how do you know all this stuff?
You are so smart..'
I was thinking quickly and 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 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 with a big smile on my face.
