If You Give Mom A Muffin!

Many of you are aware of the wonderful kid's classic, If You Give A Mouse A Cookie. Our girls have thoroughly enjoyed this along with the others in the series. Last week I came across this hilarious version tailored for the mom. ENJOY!

If You Give A Mom A Muffin

Original Author Unknown

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'll 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 for supper.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She'll look for her cookbook ("101 Things To Do 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 check book 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's diaper.
While she is changing the diaper, the phone will ring.
Her five-year-old will answer and hang up.
She'll remember she wants to phone a friend for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup.
And chances are...
If she has a cup of coffee,
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.

This is so funny! Kyle and I had a good laugh. Sounds like a typical day at our house. Jo likes "If You Give a Pig a Pancake" and we know it very well. Thanks for sharing!

I know I am having a hectic day when Jason comes home and if he opens the microwave finds a cold cup of coffee I had warmed up but got busy and forgot it the rest of the day!! :)
