If you give a mom a muffin....{printable}

My sister just called to ask if I had any ideas for mom for Mother's Day and it may me think of the "If you give a mom a muffin" poem that I said I would do some printables for.....where did the time go?

"If You Give Mom a Muffin"
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'll find dirty socks.
She'll remember she has to do laundry.
When she puts the laundry in the washer,
She'll trip over boots and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her
she has to plan for supper.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She'll look for her cookbook
("101 Things To Do With a Pound of Hamburger").
The cookbook is setting 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
that is being dumped out by her two-year-old.
She'll smell something funny.
She'll change the two-year-old's diaper.
While she is changing the diaper, the phone will ring.
Her five-year-old will answer and hang up.
She'll remember she wants to phone a friend for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her
that she was going to have a cup. And chances are...If she has a cup of coffee,
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.

I'm not a coffee drinker, so I did one with Cocoa and one with Juice.  Once I got started on the different colors and designs, I went completely a little crazy.

 How fun to add this to a box of muffins and a bottle of juice (or a cute mug to go with the cocoa)   I think I'll be giving this to all my kids second moms and my favorite mom friends!

Happy Mother's Day to all my favorite moms, wanna be moms and soon to be moms!
