Mommy Multitasking

We often take walks in the morning. Ever seen a one man band? You know a street performer with a bunch of instruments all strapped to him in an intricate configuration so he can play them all at once? That's what I feel like on these walks. Here's what I mean:

That's me with Zoodle tied to me in a front carrier, Hammer (the dog) tied to a belt on my waist, and Chickie in the stroller. Often Zoodle nurses as we walk. A friend sometimes comes on walks with us, and she pushes the stroller, which does make things easier.

(To be honest, doing so many things at once makes me feel a little like Supermom! Though I need Superman's phone booth; it takes me forever to get everything ready for our walks.)

Oh, I remember being a SuperMom:) When you feel you can do this and that and 1000001 things more at once, when you can climb the stairs with the stroller up to the 5th floor and then back, you suddenly realize that all routine tasks you have at home or at work are SO EASY:)

That is an interesting combination you've got going on there. SuperMom can do it all!
