Some claim that women are naturally better at multi-tasking than men. After having 3 babies, I really don't doubt that. It makes sense, especially when you think about nursing moms. In fact, with every baby I have perfected my ability to complete tasks while nursing the baby at the same time.
At this point, I can nurse the baby and simultaneously...
- Type an email.
- Prepare (some) meals.
- Dial the phone.
- Brush my hair back.
- Comb and style my girl's hair (while balancing the baby on my lap, while I sit in indian-style on the floor).
- Wipe down the counters and table in the kitchen.
- Sweep the floor.
- Put away dishes.
- Use my foot to move clothes and toys back into their designated rooms.
I suppose that once I have children who are old enough to hold a baby and/or do more chores, the need for this level of multi-tasking will all become a thing of the past. Won't it? I'm right about this, aren't I? You who have older children: please tell me I'm right!
But, I digress.
At any rate, how about you? Do you work "single-handedly" while nursing? What have you learned to do? I'm wondering can one of you top this list? Any takers?
