>Modern proverbs – its not multi tasking its just being a Mum

>Oh blimey there are some things that you never realise that you can do before you become a Mum but that you suddenly find yourself doing – the other day I found myself breastfeeding Babygirl whilst reading to Toddlergirl whilst peeling potatoes for lunch … not one, not two but three things at once

Whilst Mr Muddling concentrated on doing one thing at a time … like breathing in and out …

A proverb (from the Latin proverbium), also called a byword or nayword, is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of humanity.

    >Aah, yes, that breathing thing. 'Tis complicated for the male of the species.

    >Oh, a rueful giggle coming from me right now.

    The other thing, apart from breathing, is the male need to do whatever they have just identified as 'Needing To Be Done' RIGHT NOW. Um, darling, we are all sitting in the car, I can't sort the winter clothes that you just found in the garage at this exact moment because we kind of need to, um, go!

    >Well done on the multi-tasking. I recall in the early days of b/feeding my twin girls, that I managed to prepare and serve supper to my 16m old boy, undress and bath him then put him to bed, and put a casserole in the oven for my dinner, all with a baby attached to my breast. Ah, happy days…

    Anyway, I actually came by to thank you most sincerely for being there, virtually, after my on-line melt-down. My boys' birthday was really okay in the end, largely down to having 'got it all out' the night before. Thank you x
