If you give a mom a cookie...

I saw this idea on another blog and thought it was cute so I put my own spin on it!

If You give a Mom a Cookie

If you give a mom a cookie, she will take one bite. Her one year old will come up to her and sign that he wants food and point to the cookie.

This will remind the Mom that it is lunch time. Since a cookie is not a good lunch, she will put it down and open the refrigerator to look for some lunch. After scraping together a few things for her little one, she decided it is well past time to go grocery shopping.

After writing list and packing her child into the car, she will go to the grocery store to get some food for her family. Once she is home and unpacked the food her little one will spill some of his juice.

The mom will clean up the mess with a towel and throw it down the clothes shoot and remember that the laundry needs to be done. She will go to do a load of Laundry.

While doing the Laundry, her little one will get into the bathroom and pull all the Toilet paper off the roll and dig in the garbage, (Gross!) She will have to clean up the mess in the bath room and her child!

She looks at the clock and it is time to get dinner ready. She sets about to preparing a meal that will make her family happy and full , trying not to trip on her child who is playing at her feet.

Her Husband will come home and they will sit down to a nice family meal, complete with burping and the throwing of food! After dinner, she will remember her cookie and go back to where she put it down.

It is not there! She asks her husband if he saw it... He says "Yeah, I ate it! It was good! You should have one!"

Adapted from the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie."

That pretty much describes every day around here. :)

Very creative, and fun! But, if you give this mom a cookie, it would be gone in one bite :)

Yes, that is my life! It seems like everyday I start out with a plan in my head, and then one event leads to another and I am off down the rabbit trail. The day never goes how I "plan" it to go!

And I agree with Pam..this Mom would definitely eat the cookie! Somedays, treats are the only key to my happiness amidst the insanity.

Okay...so I'd probably gobble up the cookie and then grab another one, chewing surreptitiously so the kids don't know I have a cookie in my mouth...it's okay for Mommy to eat cookies at 8:00 in the morning, but not a good habit to start with the kids!

Funny post, Fawnda! One thing ALWAYS leads to another for a Mommy.

Apparently, you guys don't make your cookies as big as I do! No way can you see it all in one bit!! : )

But maybe eating it before my Little king wakes up is the key! Thanks for the tip Donna! : )

We eat our junk food after the kids go to bed for the night.
Cute post!
