I found this on a friend of a friend's blog. (you like that) I found this absolutely hilarious and it fits when those of us with preschoolers.
"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.
Her three year old will spill the coffee.
She'll wipe it up.
Wiping it up she'll find dirty socks.
She'll remember she has to do the laundry.
When she put the laundry in the washer,
She'll trip over a pair of boots and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her
She has to plan for dinner
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She'll look for her cookbook.
The checkbook is in her purse
That is being dumped out by her two year old.
She'll smell something funny.
She'll change her two year old's diaper.
While she is changing the diaper the phone will ring.
Her five year old will answer and hang up.
She'll remember she want to phone a friend to have coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her
That she was going to have a cup.
And chances are...if she has a cup of coffee,
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.
