Full disclaimer: I did not write this. I’m not sure who did. I copied it from another mom on Facebook, who copied it from another mom on Facebook, and so on and so on.
If you give a mom a muffin, she’ll want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She’ll pour herself some. Her 4-year-old will spill the coffee.
She’ll wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she will find dirty socks. She’ll remember she has to do laundry. When she puts the laundry in the washer, she’ll trip over boots and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her… she has to plan supper. She will get out a pound of hamburger. She’ll 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 1-year-old. She’ll smell something funny. She’ll change the 1-year-old.
While she is changing the 1-year-old the phone will ring. Her 8-year-old will answer and hang up. She’ll remember that she wants to phone a friend to come for coffee.
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.
