Before I get started, quick reminder that I have a green gift bag giveaway going on here.
If you give a mom a moment, she’ll take a deep breath.
And then she’ll cough because she’s realized it’s been awhile since she last dusted, and she just inhaled a lungful of who knows what.
If a mom starts dusting, she’ll notice that there’s a piece of a Lego sitting on the shelf, so she’ll go put the Lego away.
If a mom puts a Lego away, she’ll notice that there’s something sticky sitting in the bucket where the Legos below, so she’ll take the bucket to the sink.
If a mom takes the bucket to the sink, she’ll notice that someone put dishes into the sink instead, so she’ll start to put the dishes in the dishwasher.
If a mom starts to put dishes in the dishwasher, she’ll notice that it wasn’t emptied — simply opened and shut again once someone realized all the dishes were clean — and she’ll start to put dishes away.
If a mom starts to put dishes away, she’ll set the ones that go into the locked cabinet on the counter because it’s just easier that way.
If a mom sets the dishes that go into a locked cabinet onto the counter, she’ll notice that there’s a school form that needs to go back to school sitting on the counter.
If a mom sees the school form sitting on the counter, she’ll head into the office to get her checkbook to send yet another payment into school.
If a mom goes to get her checkbook, she’ll realize that she needs to also send a check to the doctor to pay for the last visit and puts that in the mailbox.
If a mom puts a check to the doctor in the mailbox, she’ll realize that it’s after 10:30 and the mailman already came and she’ll have to go to the post office, so she hops in her car.
If a mom hops in her car, she’ll realize that no one filled up the gas tank and she needs to get some gas.
If a mom goes to get some gas, she’ll open up her purse to pay and see that she left her wallet at home, so she has to go back home before finishing her errands for the day.
If a mom goes back home to pick up her wallet, she’ll walk in the house and see the coats sitting all over the floor, so she’ll start to hang them up.
If a mom starts to hang up the coats in the closet, she’ll see that a breakfast plate was tucked into the closet when a child started to put on shoes.
If a mom sees a plate tucked into the closet, she’ll return to the kitchen where she’ll see the items that need to be put into the locked cabinet.
If a mom puts the items into the locked cabinet, she’ll spot the bottle of wine also tucked into the corner.
If a mom spots a bottle of wine, the mom will grab the wine, wine glass and corkscrew — all of which are where they belong because everyone knows to NOT TOUCH those items.
If a mom grabs her wine supplies, she’ll take a moment.
If you give a mom a moment….
