nothing says multitasking like being a mom

April 7, 2011 at 11:37 pm (Deuce, Junior)

There are days I’m not sure if I want a second set of hands or a padded room.  Sometimes I realize that maybe I’m trying to do a few too many things at once.  A prime example happened when Deuce was about a week old.  I didn’t even realize exactly what I was doing in the moment.

I was sitting on the couch, nursing Deuce.  He’d just gotten started, so I knew he’d need to eat for a while longer.  Junior called from the bathroom that he was all done pooping and was ready to be wiped.  So, I walk to the bathroom, nursling cradled in my left arm, attached to my left breast.  I grab some toilet paper while Junior leans forward and I wipe him with my right hand.  In that moment, I realized the craziness of the situation.  I was feeding a newborn and wiping a toddler at the exact same moment.  I think that was life welcoming me into being a mom of two.
