This one was just too good to pass up. A high school friend of mine just sent this to me (Thanks, Kendra!) and I laughed my head off, so I thought I’d share it with you all. It’s a spoof of “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”, by Laura Numeroff.

If you give a mom a muffin, she’ll want a cup of coffee to go with it. She’ll pour herself some. Her three-year-old will spill the coffee. She’ll wipe it up. Wiping the floor, she will find dirty socks. She’ll remember she has to do laundry… Continue reading…

(Now I KNOW there is a God and He loves me VERY MUCH!!) So, overall, the transition to three from two has been pretty smooth so far. I know there’s a long way to go, but I’m counting my blessings as they come!
