This might be too self-gratifying for you, but as I face the imminent end of nursing my youngest child, I have to give props to myself and anyone else who has found themselves doing the Ultimate MultiTask:
– Working on her computer with right hand
– While in heels and skirt, eyeing her dress shirt, waiting next to the hot iron
– Taking a business call on her cell phone with her neck
– Nursing her insistent baby with her left hand
This was me the other morning, and somehow, what I’m describing was not a picture of chaos.
I’m edging myself back into the workforce after taking not quite a year off to be with my two young kids – daunting, in some respects, except that truly, nothing can be as hard as keeping your cool in instances like the above.
Too bad it’s not kosher fodder for a resume…
