(sent to me by my friend, Jen. Had to post it! So true!)
If you Give a Mom a Muffin If you give a mom a muffin, she'll want a cup of coffee to go with it.She'll pour herself some. Her three-year-old will spill the coffee.She'll wipe it up. Wiping the floor, she will find dirty socks. She'llremember she has to do laundry. When she puts the laundry in thewasher, she'll trip over boots and bump into the freezer. Bumping intothe freezer will remind her she has to plan supper. She will get out apound of hamburger. She'll look for her cookbook. (101 Things To MakeWith A Pound Of Hamburger.) The cookbook is sitting under a pile ofmail. She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow. She willlook for her checkbook. The checkbook is in her purse that is beingdumped out by her two-year-old. She'll smell something funny. She'llchange the two-year-old. While she is changing the two-year-old thephone will ring. Her five-year-old will answer and hang up. She'llremember that she wants to phone a friend to come for coffee. Thinkingof coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup. She willpour herself some. And chances are, if she has a cup of coffee, herkids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.
