Some days I feel like all I do is run around doing little things here and there but that I never actually accomplish anything. I’m sure many of you can relate. When I am asked by my husband, “so what did you do today?” It takes me a second to realize he is just trying to find out about my day and not accuse me of doing nothing!
If you give a mom a brownie,
She'll want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She'll pour herself some.
Her preschooler will spill the coffee.
She'll wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she will find a pair of dirty socks.
She'll remember she has to do the laundry.
When she puts the laundry in the washer,
She'll trip over shoes and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan dinner.
She will get out a freezer meal.
She'll look for her recipe book
The recipe book is sitting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill, it will remind her it is due tomorrow.
She will look for her checkbook.
The checkbook is in her purse that is being dumped out by her toddler.
She'll smell something funny.
She'll change the toddler's diaper.
While she is changing the toddler the phone will ring.
Her preschooler 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 children will have eaten the brownie that went with it. (watch video for How to Make Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Brownie Cupcakes)
