Today (and every day) there were moments when I was literally trying to do 5 or 6 things at once. At dinner for instance, I was trying to eat, figure out why #6 was screaming in her high chair, console 4-yr-old #5 who was sitting on my lap crying after a picture frame fell on her shoulder, clean up a spilled smoothie, stop #2 and #3 in their efforts to out-sing each other at the table and give my husband my undivided attention in our dinner conversation. This pace went on until approximately 2 minutes before dear daughter came to me with her advice for being calm. I know I'm superwoman, but even superwoman has her limits.
PS I was wrong about them all being asleep...off I go.
