If You Give a Mom A Muffin…..

If you give a mom a muffin,
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 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 dinner for tonight.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She will look for her cookbook –
(101 ways 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 four-year-old will answer and hang up.

She’ll remember that she wants to phone a friend to come for coffee on
Thinking of coffee will remind her she was going to have a cup.
She will pour herself some.

And chance are…….
If she has a cup of coffee…..
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it!

    I relate to this one lots of times!
    You asked me what kind of cereal to use last week on my slow cooking thursday post; for the breakfast apple cobbler, I think I have used a cereal called Basic 4 before. There might be other ones out there, just look for something that is fruit & nut. Hope that helps.
