If You Give a Mom a MacBook...

9.06.2012

She'll probably want a cup of coffee to go with it.

She'll sit down with her coffee just to check her email before getting busy on the laundry.

Her email will lead her to her blogger dashboard where she will get started on a new post.

Writing the post will remind her of the photos she wanted to edit and she'll open Photoshop to get started.

While editing the photos, she'll remember the new action that she wanted to install and she'll find the website with the free actions she saw the week before.

Before getting to the actions page, she'll notice a few new blogs in the sidebar and she'll click on one.

This will lead her to 25 other blogs where she will read and comment.

Reading blogs will remind her that she wanted to send a friend a quick message on Facebook.

She'll click over to Facebook and read her news feed before finally sending that message.

While on Facebook she'll see an advertisement for Shutterfly and she'll remember the photo book she started for her baby's first birthday.

She'll head over to Shutterfly to get to work on the book.

She'll have trouble remembering her password and will have to try at least 3 times before finally getting it right.

Working on her Shutterfly she'll remember that she didn't upload all of her pictures so she'll work on that for just a few minutes before getting to the book.

Waiting for her pictures to upload will make her hungry and she'll wonder what she should make for dinner.

She'll open up Pinterest to look for a new recipe.

All of the lovely pins will capture her attention and not only will she pin a few meals, she'll also pin a 10 new crafts, 5 beautiful rooms, and 15 activities she wants to try with her toddler.

Seeing the toddler activities will remind her of the sensory box she wanted to make and she'll search until she finds the blog with all of the sensory box ideas.

She'll start making a list of supplies to order while also thinking about all of the junk in her craft closet that needs to be organized.

Once the list is ready, she'll head over to Amazon to start ordering.

Shopping on Amazon will remind her of the sewing supplies that she wants to order as well.

Thinking of sewing supplies will remind her of the embroidery project she wants to make and she'll open Etsy to look for inspiration.

She'll find several cute ideas and pin them. Then open up her embroidery software to get started on her design. When she is halfway through the design she'll remember the pictures that were uploading.

Just as she is checking on the pictures, she'll hear her email notification. She'll open her email to check her new messages.

While checking her messages, she'll see the awesome deal on of her favorite shopping sites.

She'll open it up just to browse and immediately start adding stuff to her cart.

Then she'll remember that she opened her computer *just* to check her email and will look at the clock in disbelief.

At that very moment she'll hear an all too familiar sound: the cry of her sweet baby waking up from her nap.

And she'll think about how she must get better at time management.

She'll shrug her shoulders, tell herself that there's always tomorrow, and head upstairs to snuggle her precious girl.
