When I first began this blog, I really wanted to write more frequently, but you see, these days, I usually only have one hand free, literally. Ashlyn is a good baby, quiet and content, but because she is a baby, she does require to be carried (duh). I have learned to do many things one handed, call me talented and/or brilliant if you like and insert applause here. :)
Moms have this super hero giftedness of one handed activities and carrying many things at one time-like a car seat, a purse, a diaper bag, and ten bags of groceries.
So, since I have been thinking about this one handed life that I lead, I have thought about some out of the ordinary things that I do on a day to day basis one handed/while holding a baby (in no particular order).
*Prepare baby formula (which includes use of a can opener)
*Pour formula into baby bottles
*Help Mariah get dressed for school
*Help Ambria get dressed
*Put load of laundry in washer
*Put load of laundry in dryer
*Check facebook (ha, bet you didn't realize all status updates and comments are done one handed and while feeding Ashlyn a bottle!)
*Make macaroni and cheese (the microwave kind)
*Cut up waffles
*Cut an apple
Despite this awesome talent, there are some things that I have found that NEED two hands and that I cannot do while holding a baby...
*Tying shoes (I just can't figure out how to do this with one hand!)
*Washing the bathtub
And there are a few things that are just more convenient with the use of two hands...
*Blogging...hence the lack of posts.
