Monday Funny

This was in our Mops newsletter last month. I love the Give a Mouse/Moose a Cookie/Muffin books, so this made me laugh. Just a little something to brighten your Monday!

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.
So 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 supper for tonight.

She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She'll look for her cookbook. (101 Things To Make With a Pound of
The cookbook is sitting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill which is due tomorrow.
She will look for the 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. (Of course!)
Her five year old will answer it and hang up.

She remembers that she wants to phone a friend to come over for coffee on
Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup.
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.

Amen to that! I think it's called stream of consciousness life in a nutshell.

For instance today I have a bad cold starting. Before taking medicine for that cold, I began to get breakfast for the kids, then pick up some messes, then of course, some coffee, homework in backpacks, off to the bus, chase the cat (who ran outside), then some breakfast for me and finally the cold medicine :)

I want to come and visit next time! Babysitter for me, too...just let me know and give me directions.

Blessings on your week Kimberly!
