If You Give a Mom a Steam Mop

If you give a mom a steam mop,
She'll remember that it has been so long
That she can't remember when she last mopped.
So that mom will go into the kitchen to get the mopping started.
But when she's in the kitchen,
The mom will notice that the dishwasher needs unloading.
So, she'll put her daughter in the high chair with an ice cream cone,
Sans the ice cream.
Then the mom will unload the dishwasher.
When she's done unloading the dishwasher,
 She'll notice that the sink is full of dirty dishes.
So she'll need to crank up the Glee on the CD player
and fill the dishwasher with all the dirty dishes.
When the dishwasher is full,
The mom will notice that not everything fits.
So she'll take her daughter out of the high chair
and put on her long purple gloves.
While the daughter dances to the music,
The mom will wash the non-dishwasher-safe pans
and the other stuff that didn't fit.
When the mom has placed all the clean dishes on a dish towel to dry,
She'll notice that floor needs sweeping.
So she'll move all the chairs out of the kitchen, and sweep that floor.
Sweeping the floor will remind her that the floor needs mopping.
She will use the steam mop you gave her to clean and then sanitize the floor.
And chances are, if you give a mom a steam mop,
She'll have a clean kitchen to go with it.

So that's how that works. I've been wondering why my kitchen isn't the tidiest. I guess I'll have to find the steam mop.
