Remember this childhood book?

I always loved it... and thought it would be so true.  Then they came out with version #2:  If you take A Mouse to the Movies.  It was pretty great too.  And then version #3:  If you give a Moose a Muffin.  It just kept getting better! But wait... as an adult, I discovered the ultimate one:

"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 come and spill the coffee.

Mom will wipe it up.

Wiping the floor, she will find some dirty socks.

She’ll remember she has to do the laundry.

When she puts the laundry in the washer,

She’ll trip over the shoes 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.

(How to Make 101 Things 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,

Which is being dumped out by her two-year-old.

Then she'll smell something funny.

She'll change the two-year-old.

While she is changing her two-year-old, the phone will


Her five-year-old will answer and hang up.

She’ll remember she was supposed to phone a friend

To come over for coffee.

Thinking of coffee will remind her she was going to 

have a cup.

She will pour herself some more.

And chances are,

If she has a cup of coffee,

Her kids will have eaten

the muffin that went with it!

That was the story of my life for many years. Haha! 

Well, I thought I'd gotten over that, but last night, 

I had another new version happen to me.

If You Keep Sleep From a Mom

If you keep sleep from a Mom,

She'll turn over to pet her cat.

When she reaches for the cat,

Her hand will bump the water bottle on her 


She'll realize that she is thirsty.

When she takes a drink of her water,

She'll realize that she forgot to eat dinner and is


Because she is starving, she'll lie there and think 

about food.

That will remind her that she needs to put on 

something for dinner the next night.

Thinking about the next night will remind her that she

needs to finish her laundry.

Once she thinks about laundry,

It reminds her that her sister didn't get a chance to 

use her washer and dryer when she was there.

Thinking about her sister, reminds her of her sister's 

cat that got hurt.

Thinking of that cat reminds her that she was going to

pet her own cat.

She reaches to pet her own cat,

Only to find out that her cat has left the building!
