Multitasking

Everyone multitasks but I think us moms are the biggest multitaskers...it's one of the first things you have to master if you want to survive motherhood.  It can be hard and exhausting at times...I mean, take me for example..Look at all the multitasking I had to do today....what a whirlwind!!!

 Texting, writing thank you notes, listening to the baby monitor while the kids took naps...and absorbing my vitamin D on the deck...it's just too much sometimes!!! But I gotta do what I gotta do! :P  Yesterday I had to catch up on my new issue of Family Fun magazine (they finally figured out my new address) while trying to promote my health sitting in the sauna downstairs while listening to the Backyardigans singing "what do you do with a scurvy pirate..." on the otherside of the glass door where J was having a little TV break, and Baby was napping....just so much to keep track of sometimes!!!!!!

And please don't make me tell you how I have to put the babygate at the top of the deck stairs and drink my yummy breakfast smoothie sitting at  the bistro set my mom just got us, while the kids run around and we listen to these doves cooing away.  Can't a momma find any peace????

Ok, Ok...not everyday is so "hectic"...lol.  But we sure are enjoying our summer and our new home!



And that yummy refreshing breakfast smoothie I mentioned?

1 ripe banana
1 cup milk ( I use coconut milk)
1 tsp instant coffee
2 tsp cocoa powder
Ice

Blend till smooth

Oh how I wish I could come and chat on your deck and watch our kiddos play in your backyard. Your house is gorgeous and so are you.. I love that picture of you soaking up the sun. Glad you are making the most of summer. Love, Jenn

Wow, busy mama! :) Were you able to multi-task using the camera timer or did you have to wake the kids up from their naps so they could snap it for you? ;)

MISS YOU!
