"If You Give A Mom A Muffin"

O.k. so I read this poem, "If you give a Mom a muffin" and love it! Then I thought about writing one for us crazy mother bloggers! Here is what I came up with...

If You Give A Mom A Muffin... (Blogger Version) Created By Tamara Cochran 5/28/08
If you give a mom a muffin, it’s likely she will want to blog while eating it. She’ll plop herself down at her computer. Her kids will call out that they are hungry she will yell out, “Just a second!” and return to blogging. While going from one blogsite to another the phone begins to ring... she does not hear it. 45 min. later the kids beg for anything to eat; without looking at them she waves them off telling them to grab something and continues to blog. Grabbing chocolate pudding, juice, cookies, peanut butter and chips the refrigerator is left open, a trail of juice is spilt on the floor, crumbs are everywhere the phone continues to ring and now the washer is buzzing... she continues to blog! She comes up for air and runs to the kitchen closes the fridge, wipes up the juice, leaves the crumbs and puts a few dishes in the dish washer. She returns to blogging. The kids begin to fight... “The puppy fell in the toilet!” and she yells out, “No, not now...just get along for once!” She breaks to grab the sopping dog not noticing the toilet paper hanging from its tail, she puts her in the laundry room and goes back to blogging! 3 hours later all common since and parental consciousness has been thrown out the window! The kids are now sleeping on the floor, the TV is blaring, the puppy is shivering in the laundry room, the washer is filled with a spoiled wash. She finally releases her grasp from blogging grabs the 1/2 dry puppy, walks over crunchy crumbs, turns off the TV, kisses her kids and falls asleep while dreaming of blogging.... all the while the muffin grows stale next to her PC.

If you Give A Mom A Muffin by: Kathy Fictorie
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.
