If You Give A Mom a Muffin…

Got this in an email today. Based on the If You Give A Mouse A Cookie books by Laura Numeroff, which are all awesome books, but this one really resonates with me. Happy Mother’s Day all you MOMs out there. I learn from all of you each and every day. Thank you for all you give to me!

If You Give A Mom A Muffin

(Based on “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Numeroff)

If you give a Mom a muffin,
She’ll want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She’ll pour herself some.
The coffee will get spilled by her three year old.
She’ll wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she will find some dirty socks.
She’ll remember she has to do some laundry.
When she puts the laundry in the washer,
She’ll trip over some snow boots and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan dinner
for tonight.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She will look for her cookbook (101 Things to Make With a
Pound of Hamburger).
The cookbook is sitting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill which is due tomorrow.
She will look for her checkbook.
The checkbook is in her purse that is being dumped out by her
two year old.
She’ll smell something funny.
She’ll change the two year old.
While she is changing the two year old the phone will ring.
Her four year old will answer it and hang up.
She remembers that she wants to phone a friend to come for
coffee on Friday.
Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a
She will pour herself some.
And chances are……
If she has a cup of coffee……
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.

    Just wait till you add kids to the mix…your head will feel like it is going to explode.
    Or maybe we both just have ADD and it has nothing to do with kids AT ALL.
