I am a busy lady – not as busy as I could be, but I’m keeping myself out of trouble! And, I am proud to say, although still working to perfect my priorities, I am doing better at staying busy while keeping my family at the forefront of my obligations.
Today’s word is:
Moms know this word all too well. Not awful long ago, I read an article that said men multitask better than women, and I would agree with that … at times – for example, when the mother of small children is sleep deprived.
This is my son’s first year in religious education. Because he is officially enrolled, I felt it important to be willing to teach a class for the program which derives much of its teachers from a parent volunteer force. I agreed to teach, and part of the agreement to teach the class was my being willing to be trained as a Catechist for the Archdiocese for the Military Services.
Last week, I began the first of five weeks of an online catechist course.
And, I will tell you – I am glad to be able to multitask!
If you recall, Little Miss was sick last week, so I spent a significant portion of time holding a sick baby, then keeping her hands from swatting, or grabbing, at various course material. Aside from laundry, I was pleased I kept up with my chores around the house, in addition to “mommy-ing” and classwork.
This week, I am already a day behind in my coursework – well, a day behind where I want to be. That said, I have faith I will get caught up within the next couple days. And, as of tonight, most of the laundry is done for this week, so this week is already a win!
Furthermore, I am reminded just how important multitasking is as a wife and mother!
