Multi-tasking

There are two baby products I have recently come to enjoy for their ability to help me in multi-tasking. (Okay three if you count my phone...I can check Facebook and Google Reader during middle of the night feeds...always nice to keep in touch)

The first one is this product. A friend recommended it to me and now I know why. The other day the Irishman asked me to help him out with something. I looked at him and said, "I am pumping, eating my dinner, and checking my e-mail, so no!" He and my mom just looked over and laughed. My time is limited these days...every little bit helps. (Even if it is pretty goofy looking...)

This morning I discovered the joys of baby-wearing. A friend gave me her Ultimate Baby Wrap...she wasn't crazy about it. So far, I am a fan. Caitlin and I vacuumed and mopped the floors this morning. Okay, so maybe I vacuumed and mopped while she slept soundly in the carrier, but that's okay. Even though my floors are never clean, dirty floors drive me crazy. (That would be why I got a vacuum for my 30th birthday and I think Santa is thinking of a steam cleaner this year...) To be able to get my floors done even if just a quick sloppy job was HUGE.

Also in the wrap we've been sitting at the computer blogging...or again I was blogging and Caitlin slept. Regardless, I am a happy, multi-tasking momma!

Also making me happy? The weather! The highs will "struggle to get to 70" today. That is Florida winter. Better yet? It should last for the week. Caitlin has so many long-sleeved Christmas outfits to wear this. Best of all? Daddy is off for the next two weeks, so expect lots of Christmas photos...at the beach, at the park, the holiday boat parade, at her great-grandparent's house...

Happy times!

Oh as a mom you HAVE to multitask or it would NEVER all get done. Although, I do find myself wishing I had about eight arms to make multitasking a little easier at time :)! I regret never buying one of those contraptions to make pumping easier. I think I have permanent indentions on my arms :)! Also, I used my sleepytime wrap all the time with Silas. He loved it! I love seeing the pictures...keep them coming!

For some reason I can't see what "this product" is, what is making your life easier? I do hear that the baby wraps are wonderful inventions. Looking foward to your pictures!

I loved my pump holder - great find. I could sit at my desk at work and pump, and continue to work! Great product!! I love all the pictures of your little doll. Merry Christmas

I agree that I don't usually mop my floor, but when it is extremely dirty it drives me absolutely insane.
