This poem is perfect to give moms at a Mother's Day breakfast! If you serve muffins it will be even cuter! I'm having my class recite the poem for their moms at our Mother's Day breakfast.
Happy Mother's Day!
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 come and spill the coffee.
Mom will wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she will find some dirty socks.
She’ll remember she has to do the laundry.
When she puts the laundry in the washer,
She’ll trip over the shoes and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan supper.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She’ll look for her cookbook.
(How to Make 101 Things 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 her checkbook.
The checkbook is in her purse,
Which is being dumped out by her two-year-old.
Then she'll smell something funny.
She'll change the two-year-old.
While she is changing her two-year-old, the phone will ring.
Her five-year-old will answer and hang up.
She’ll remember she was supposed to phone a friend
To come over for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her she was going to have a cup.
She will pour herself some more.
And chances are,
If she has a cup of coffee,
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.
