Multi Tasking


April2011 003

Sometimes Mike asks me how I get things done with two kids at home.  Here’s just one example : )….The other day Nicholas woke up itching (because I let him take a bath in the sink and he’d used regular soap and didn’t wash it all off—I was feeding Ryan in the other room and Nicholas insisted he needed a bath).  Anyway, Ryan was crying for his milk and Nicholas wanted his itchies off.  And I’d just gotten out of the shower and wasn’t even dressed yet.  So I put Ryan in his tub, propped his bottle up, and gave Nicholas a quick bath.  Here’s the after picture as Nicholas is helping while I get dressed.  Poor kiddos, especially poor Ryan who sometimes is stuck in the carseat or bouncy with a blankie propping up his bottle.  Thank heavens for formula…I don’t know how you nurse with more kids in the house. There’s no way I’d have time to sit down for 30 minutes every few hours – I think I get to sit down for a max of 5 minutes at a time. But you do what you have to do to survive.  Needless to say, we will all be happy when Dada is done working late.  For now, we’re surviving : ) And thanks to my two sweet boys who make it all worth it!!!

Cute! We have that same tub and we love it.

Nursing does take forever! Sam comes home and asks me what I did all day and I say "I nursed your son"

Amen! Sometimes we put the blankey up a little further around his binkie so it will stay in when we can't give him enough attention to keep it from falling out...Whatever works, right...You are a great mom! Way to get things done, even when they are stinkin hard! :)

You said it. You do what you have to do to survive. Glad to hear you're perfecting the multi-tasking!
