Bless this Stress

Collage Art by Michelle Littlefield

I just burned the toast, handed Dear Daughter her brother's vitamin, and laid the cheese for her lunch sandwich on her breakfast plate... at which point she looked at me and said so very sweetly, "are you OK, mommy?"

It's the same old song and dance... too much to do, too little time.  Seems like the multi-tasking should get easier after all these years, somehow it never does.  But as most of the women I know do, I will carry on... and keep burning the blasted toast.

Welcome to My World :) It will get better or the house will burn down one or the other!

Yep. Even without kids, I feel like women always end up doing everything.

Thank you so much for featuring my art on your blog. You made my whole day. The days where everything goes wrong just make me appreciate the good days more.

Great post. I can relate! Cooking dinner seems to turn me into a multi tasking crazy woman. I would never make it as a short order cook. Tonight I made chicken and biscuits. Needless to say the biscuits came out as hockey pucks!
Found you on etsy. Lovely blog. Will have to follow!

Ugh nothing worse then burning the kids toast .... unless they catch you scraping off the burnt parts into the garbage.
