SIMC—Celebrating Mothers Over Here

Unknown Mami

I hope all of you mothers are enjoying a beautiful and peacefully happy Mother’s Day in whatever city you’re in today!!

And thanks to my beautiful Mom for all of the muffins and pieces of pie you went without so I could have more…

“A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” ~ Tenneva Jordan

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 lookd for the 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 four year old will answer it and hang up.

She remembers that she wants to phone a friend
to come for coffee on Friday.
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.

  11. Love the muffin story, I was just thinking that today, when I was cleaning the kitchen, saw the light bulbs, went to change the light bulb in the bathroom, saw the mirror was dirty, cleaned the mirror and while putting the cleaner back realized….oh the list goes on and on!

    Happy Mother’s Day!

  12. I hope you had a glorious Mother’s Day. I have an insulated coffee cup that I use everyday because it takes me so long to get around to drinking my coffee.
