The Grandma Test...

"I was out walking with my Grandson. He picked up something off of the ground and started to put it in his mouth. I took the item away from him and I asked him not to do that. "Why?" my Grandson 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 grandson looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Grandma, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart." I was thinking quickly and said to him, "All Grandmas know stuff. It's on the Grandma Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Grandma."

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 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 Grandpa". "Exactly," I replied with a big smile on my face."

This was an email from Barb. Are you smiling?????
