I’ve just seen this on Facebook and thought it was too good not to shareJ
‘I was out walking with my 4.5-year-old son. He picked up something from the ground and started to put it in his mouth. I took it away from him and 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.’
Thinking quickly I 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 two or three 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.
