    A smile for Sunday

    Borrowed from a lady friend's post.

    I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off 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, “Mummy, how do you know all this stuff, you are so smart.”

    I was thinking quickly. “All mums know this stuff. It’s on the Mummy Test. You have to know it, or they don’t let you be a Mummy.” 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 daddy.”

    “Exactly” I replied back with a big smile on my face.

    That reminds me of the time my sister was trying to get her little ones to eat a salad.

    "It's good for you and full of vitamans to make you super strong."

    "It tastes funny."

    "It's been grown in our garden, you watched all the little seeds use all the good sunlight and rainwater to grow into good-for-you food."

    "You always tell us not to eat things that have been on the ground because they are dirty."
    "And there are dirty slugs and flies in the garden."
    "And Mrs {neighbour} cat poos in our garden."

    "I've washed it all very carefully to get any germs off."

    "But you say washing doesn't get germs off sweeties that have been on the floor."

    1-0 to the kids I think, it's hard to beat your own logic when used back at you.
