If You Give a Mom Some Rice

If you give a mom some rice, she is going to want to cook it for her lunch, so she will need a pot.

The pot still has remnants of the kids' mac and cheese in it, so she will have to wash it.

When she takes it to the sink, she sees it is filled with dirty dishes so she will have to do the dishes in the sink before she can wash the pot.

When she goes to put the dishes in the sink into the dishwasher, she will see that there are still clean dishes in the dishwasher, so she will have to empty it.

She will start putting dishes away, but realize there are too many sippy cups in the cupboard and the rest of the glasses will not fit, so she will reorganize the cupboard.

She will reorganize the cupboard, put the dishes away, load the dishwasher, wash out the pot, then look at the clock and realize it's time to make dinner.

She will reach for the rice...

If You Give a Mom a Dish

If you give a mom a dish, she is going to want to put it in the sink.

If she puts it in the sink, she is going to want to wash it.

If she washes it, she is going to want to wipe up the water that got on the counter.

As she is cleaning up the water, she will notice a pile of mail on the counter and start to go through it.

Once she starts going through the mail, she will find a bill that needs to be paid.

She will go up to her computer desk to pay the bill right away.

As she is on her way to her office, she will notice kids' clothes on the floor in the hallway, so she will need to put them away.

She will put the kids' clothes in their hampers and see that their whole room is messy and she will start to clean it.

She will realize she needs the vacuum, so she will go downstairs to get it.

While she is getting the vacuum she will see a dirty dish on the table...
