Lucky

Anna: What’s luck, Mama?

Me: Umm…

Anna: It’s like when you get chocolate cake with strawberries.

Me: Exactly.

lovely answer :-)

One of my friend was out walking with her 4-year-old daughter. The little girl picked up something off of the ground and started to put it in her mouth. My friend took it away and asked her not to do that.

'Why?' the little girl asked.

'Because it's been on the ground. You don't know where it's been.
It's dirty and probably has germs,' her mother replied.

At this point the little girl looked at her mother with total admiration and asked, 'Mama, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.'

My friend 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.'

They walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but the little girl 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.
