Express

As a mom you learn to do everything fast-like running errands -i hustle to the car because they are always too many places to go and not enough time before child breakdown, nursing, preschool pick-up or store closing (I don't sprint so people think i am a fleeing shoplifter- but defintely don't saunter) I am a walking multitasker (talking on the phone, holding, baby, putting on mascara at the same time) we appreciate TIME in a way others can't understand--as a mom i have shaved my morning "get ready routine down to 15 min"- yet somehow it still doesn't happen many days-- it takes my husband longer than that to get ready. Whenever we get ready at the same time i tell him- go faster- scrub faster, brush faster- such squandering!!

maybe i think if i can get himt o go faster i can steal his minutes??

The other day someone in a store commented about how talented I was with one hand, lol! "Well", I wanted to say (and maybe even gloat a little), "I've been through rigorous training and you should see me clean my house on a moment's notice for unexpected company!"

Only moms get it. How come I can get ready faster with a baby attached to my leg than most men can?

(Delete was mine--had a glaring typo.)

I think moms just get into "hurry" mode. Unfortunately, I even rush when I don't have to. I've told my kids to hurry up and they'll say, "Why? Where are we going?" Um, I guess we're not going anywhere. I guess you don't have to hurry after all...
