Sorry Dads!

Just had this posted on my FB and it made me smile hope it does the same for you :)

For all beautiful mums.

I was out walking with my 4.5-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' ? my son 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 ,

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

I was thinking quickly and replied , 'All mums know this stuff . It's on the

Mum Test . You have to know it , or they don't let you be a Mum'.

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'.

'Exactly' , I replied with a big smile on my face .
