If You Give A Mom A Muffin

  1. 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 it up 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.

    The cookbook is setting 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 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 goes with it.
