I found this on one of my adoption web groups. They didn't know who wrote it and either do I. It is a take off of the book "If you give a mouse a cookie". I love that book. Jessica tore it up, so it's on my "wish list". If you want to buy Sarah a gift then our baby registry is Here. As I wrote in the past, I don't need new books, please get the used books and save your money.For the best price, go to the wish list, then just click on the picture of the book or video and you'll find all the prices (some books are as little as $1.00). All the things on our registry will be sent to my parent's home in Oregon. I will come there after Sarah's adoption to get her US passport.

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
She will get out a pound of hamburger (or tofu).
She will look for her cookbook (101 Things to Make with a Pound of
Hamburger (or tofu)).
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 the purse that is being dumped out by her two year
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
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.
