Writer's Workshop

Mama

It is again time for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. A lot of good posts and good prompts this week; why not head on over to check it out for yourself.

Prompt #1: If You Give a Mom a Moment...

If you give a mom a moment...

she's likely to ask for a bath.

While soaking in the bath,

she's going to ask for some bubbles.
The bubbles will remind her that the dishes need done.

So she'll get out of the tub and dry off.

While getting dressed, she'll hear the washer running.
So she'll go to switch over laundry.

On her way there, she'll probably step on a toy.

She'll start to pick up toys.
She might get carried away and pick up every room.

She may even end up vacuuming, too.

When she's done, she'll need a nap.

She'll have to make the bed.

She'll climb under the sheets and
roll around a few times to get comfy.

Just as her eyes close, the baby will wake up.

She might get excited to have a little cuddle...

until she smells the poo.

She'll go to change his diaper and throw it outside,
where she'll remember today is Trash Day.

She'll have to take out all the trash.
Which means she'll put in new trash bags.

The bags will remind her that
she needs to get some groceries.

She'll start to make a list
and then Daddy comes home early.

He'll give her a kiss...
and tell her he'll take care of dinner.

So...
she'll ask for a moment.
And chances are if you give a mom a moment...
she'll finally finish that bath.

Inspired by "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie"

So funny!

It's hilarious that the majority of moms who wrote on this prompt, pretty much noted that we never really get that much anticipated moment lolol

Nicely done! I think as moms we have ADD - we just can't focus on one thing for too long without remembering something else that needs our attention.
