Celebrating Women for the Real World

Tickle Tuesday

Come on, say it with me – It’s not Monday; and it’s not Humpday; so it must be Tickle Tuesday.  Tickle Tuesday is our attempt to lighten your load and may your week a little brighter.



I was out walking with my 4-year-old daughter.  She picked up something off of the ground and started to put it in her mouth.
I took the item away from her and 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, ‘Mama, how do you know all this stuff?  You are so smart.’  

I answered, ‘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.’  
We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently
pondering this new information, because she finally replied;
‘Oh…..I get it!’ she 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.

    The princess used to tell me that I was smarter than the average bear.

    I think that was a compliment.
