I was out walking with my 5 year old sons.
He picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth.
I took the item away from him and I 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, 'Ammi, how do you know all this stuff, you are so smart.'
I was thinking quickly. 'All ammis know this stuff.
It's on the Ammi Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Ammi.
' 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 dad.
''Exactly' I replied back with a big smile on my face. ****** ammi sara...
