Multi-tasking Mishaps of a Mother of Four

I was born to multi-task. It is in my blood. It is also part of how I was raised, growing up in the restaurant business, I could deliver chips and salsa, take an appetizer order and seat a table of five within a few minutes, by the age of seven.

So I was made for this, mothering four small children.

I have kept a list of all the things I can do while nursing my four week old...

Nursing while going to the bathroom.

Nursing while changing Audrey's diaper.

Nursing while brushing Avery's hair.

Nursing while making a salad.

Nursing while sword fighting with McClaine.

Nursing while making coffee.

Nursing while facebooking and watching American Idol.

There are multi-tasking mishaps, like when you are nursing and in the middle of a diaper change and you are out of wipes. Yikes.

Or you are nursing and making a salad and the ranch dressing splatters on your babe.

I find it very challenging to nurse while showering. I also find it very challenging to blog and raise four children, and that is why you haven't heard from me for over a week.

Pictures to come... hopefully before next week, and as soon as Reece's baby acne clears up!

And I thought I was the ultimate at multitasking!

Please tell me you are at least wearing Reece in a sling or something while doing this.

Very multi-talented! My baby had acne so bad and everyone was asking for pictures, ugh!
I was wondering about the sling thing too. :)

It's amazing the things you can do one-handed, right? ; )

I bet you were nursing while writing this...sadly I am too; but my baby is NOT much of a baby and tends to play gymnastics ;)
You''ll get the hang of it :)
