Octopussy

Some days don't you just feel so....outnumbered?

It's just not possible to prepare lunch, pour a cup of juice milk, tie a shoe, put on a DVD just to shut them up to stimulate their minds with Baby Einstein (Hush! You know you do it too!), and kiss a boo-boo...all at the same time.

Even if I were some sort of mutant human-octopus-mom, I still don't think I'd have enough arms to satisfy everyone.

Oh thank goodness you don't actually have an OCTO Pussy. That would be creepy.

I'm quite worried about how I going to please everyone in the rapidly approaching upcoming weeks.

*snicker* Jen said pussy.

I know EXACTLY where you're coming from!

If sticking your kid in front of a TV and putting in a DVD is a crime...then I'm guilty. I often call for Calgon to come take me away.

...And you don't have to satisfy everyone. Just make sure you satisfy yourself...or have your husband do it for you. Ha Ha Ha!!

Noggin helps here too - a little more than it should!

We love some Noggin at our house--also, Peter Pan seems to do the trick as well.

I used the ole' t.v. as a babysitter when I was a SAHM. Of course not everyday but ya know why deny that high piece of modern technology?

Heather said...

is anyone allowed to say 'pussy' on a blog comment? I think we should turn Jennifer in.

8 arms, 4 legs, 6 eyes and 3 mouths wouldn't be enough to satisfy everyone, would it?

Love your blog. I find Noggin and Sprout key to my days survival. I love Comcast on demand...

Cloning is looking better and better everyday. If only their were another me then the real me could go off and do something fun like check into an insane asylum while the other takes over the day to day. I don't even have time to be mentally ill. Parenting is so exhausting.

Octu-wussy, indeed. Sometimes I just want to have a tantrum of my own. Thanks for letting the honest voice story of not always feeling like you can do everything perfectly and according to Dr. Spock, Dr. Sears and Dr. Nosy Neighbor rise up. It feels like a big, accepting hug.

I only have two children, and I feel at times like I have 8. So that's why I marvel at anyone with more than two who still maintains some semblance of sanity. Because I think another birth might send to me a locked ward.

Heh.

Rebecca said...

ha! don't even bother trying! You'd be better off cutting the two arms you do have off and saying "sorry. can't do anything now....and do you mind making ME a cuppa?"

Kerry said...

Hence the title of my blog - more, more, more! I feel like every wants more, more, more of everything! It seems like it's just never enough sometimes. Wait until the kids get a little older and you are relying on a yellow sponge named Bob to babysit your kids! Then you know you are going to hell!
