Motherhood Moment: If you give a mom a break...

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook and I thought it was pretty on target with how I feel some days. I'm pretty sure it's made the rounds through email and Facebook, but things like this are always worth a read...
If you give a mom a break, she'll decide it would be nice to read a book.
As she sits down to read her book, she'll remember that she likes to drink hot chocolate while reading.
When she goes to make the hot chocolate, she'll decide to do a quick load of dishes while it heats up.
When the dishes are done, she'll decide that the counters need a quick wipe-down.
As she wipes down the counters, she'l...l find a stack of school papers to fill out.
She'll sit down to fill out the papers, and realize she can't find a pen.
She'll go to the office to get a pen and see the stack of bills to pay.
After she sits down and pays the bills and does the paperwork, she'll set it all on the kitchen counter, and see the dishrag still laying there.
So, she'll take it down to the laundry, where she will decide to throw a load of laundry in.
By the time she comes upstairs to get her book and hot chocolate, the hot chocolate will be cold.
She'll decide to skip the hot chocolate (better for the waistline) and read in a hot bath instead.
So, she'll go to draw the bath and find the tub full of toys. She'll empty it out, and notice it needs to be cleaned.
So, she'll clean up the tub quick, and also the toilet, since the cleaners are all out.
Finally, she'll start to fill the tub with water for her hot bath. Just as she does, her husband and kids will come home. The hot (now cold) chocolate will be consumed by one child, while the other gets in the tub. And, she'll realize that she really needs a break.
Is anyone else guilty of doing this? I know I am!

Also, I wanted to let you know that since it's General Conference weekend, things will probably be pretty quiet around here for a few days. In case you missed it, you can check out the collection of General Conference Activity Pages/Packets that was posted earlier this week.

Have a great weekend!!!
