Mrs. Safrin was out walking with her four year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth.

Mrs. Safrin took the item away from her.

"Why did you do that?" the girl asked.

"Because it's been on the ground, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs," she replied.

At this point, the girl looked at her mother with total admiration and asked:

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

Thinking quickly she replied, "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy."

They walked along in silence for a few minutes, the girl clearly 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," Mrs. Safrin replied.
