Multi-tasking… A New High?

May 16, 2007

Perhaps a new low is more appropriate in this situation. Any mom knows that multitasking is the only way to survive. Ask any non-multitasker (a man) and he will give you a blank stare like “huh? You want me to walk and talk at the same time?”

For any mom, cooking dinner, talking on the phone, changing a diaper and feeding the dog at the same time is pretty much a typical day. Nothing too extraordinary when you are folding the laundry, feeding the baby and getting a toddler down for a nap.

So this morning when I was breastfeeding Sarah and realized that I needed to go to the bathroom, I did what any mom would do. I sat myself down on the toilet and did my business. I am not talking about a quick pee trip here, that happens several times a day. I am talking about finally being done with the iron supplements and getting back to a “regular” schedule.

At first I am was bit horrified by the fact that I was pooping with a little baby attached to my boob, but then I figured hey you do what you gotta do when the “spirit moves” as my husband would say. Sarah is no worse for the wear and I felt much better afterwards.

I’m sure when she is 16 she’ll be thrilled that I actually wrote this experience down for all to see. Heck, I may even put it down as a “first” in her baby book!
