If You Give A Mom A Muffin...

If you give a Mom a muffin (author unknown)

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 that 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 Hamburger)
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 Friday.
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.

Someone gave this to me years ago, when I had only one child to keep me living in a constant state of insanity. I just found it again yesterday and thought I'd share. If your day goes like this more often than you'd like to admit, you're not alone!

Funny how the ages of the kids actually match up with mine... I didn't change them!

That's so funny, just like the book, "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" but WAYYYYY more applicable! ;)
