If you Give a Mom a Cookie
If you give a mom a cookie, she's going to want a latte to go with it. But before she gets a latte she has to find her toddler's pink ladybug boots, to find the ladybug boots, she has to go venture into the playroom, when she tries to straighten up the playroom, she finds Daddy's left shoe, the salad bowl, and a open box of graham crackers. She also finds her cell phone.
So she'll yell at her toddler about the cell phone and wake up the baby from his morning nap, but if she goes to pick up the baby the cell phone will ring. When she answers it will be the doctor's office reminding her that she had an appointment this morning and would she like to reschedule, say sometime in November?
While she is trying to mentally recreate her calendar the baby will start to cry, then her toddler will run to see what is the matter and find the graham crackers, and there will be crumbs all over the playroom, so the mom will get the broom from the hall closet and notice that Daddy forgot to buy diapers last night as she had asked, BUT she will find her toddlers pink ladybug boots, and when she finds the pink ladybug boots she will remember her emergency stash of diapers in the car.
So she will wrestle her toddler and her baby into their car seats and drive to the store to buy more diapers and more milk, while she is buying the milk she will remember she wanted a latte, and if she manages to order her latte without a temper tantrum or poop episode from either one of her kids ..........
Then she is going to need another cookie...
