Happy Mother's Day

To all you mom's and all those who mother even without kiddos, here's a cute story my friend Sonja posted on our mom's group email loop:

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 will 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 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. 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.

Love it! And most likely, it probably was inspired by one of the sequels to the mouse/cookie book called "If you Give a Moose a Muffin"...I've blogged about the significance of that book before in my Moose post a year HERE if you want to read for kicks :) .

I'll wrap up this post with the sweetest little mother's day gift Kai gave me today (w/out even knowing he was doing so): Early this morning, Kai came into the office and said to me, "Mom, will you come sit on the couch with me so I can love on you?". Now who could resist such a request? (Sure glad I have a laptop!). Hee hee! ~Resa
