I always find it sort of funny how things in the world ”come full-circle.” The following is an example of what I mean…
If you give 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 will find dirty socks.
She’ll remember that she has to do laundry.
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 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.
Her five-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 of coffee.
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!
Such is life…..
Loved this! What an entertaining piece.
She’ll be sitting at the stoplight near the Walgreen’s yesterday at 3:37pm and point to a building and say to her 10 yr old, “That’s your old dentist’s office. Do you remember going there? Oh, DANG, you have an orthodontist appointment! Seven minutes ago!” And then she’ll hit every red light for 15 minutes until she gets there. Whew.
So true – absolutely lovely!
Can relate to this for sure! Great post as usual. I love your humor and your heart. Thanks, for reading my blog posts.
A mom’s work is never done.
