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 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 supper for tonight.

She will get out a pound of hamburger.

She'll look for her cookbook. (101 Things To Make 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 the checkbook.

The checkbook is in her purse that is being dumped out by her two year old.

She'll smell something funny.

She'll change the two year old.

While she is changing the two year old the phone will ring. (Of course!)

Her five year old will answer it and hang up.

She remembers that she wants to phone a friend to come over for coffee on Friday.

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.

The truth about nail art

I've discovered the beauty of nail art. I successfully painted watermelons on the kids and my toes. I thought things were looking pretty good.
I decided to try some hello kitty nails; they looked simple enough. Ha they came out looking like my 5 year old did them. *the pic below is after a weekend of camping. Hence the chipping.

Although they look hideous, I still get lots of compliments and people are shocked to find out I did them and not the salon.
I'll keep practicing, because it is lots of fun and a great conversation starter.
