A SAHM Moment

By Kelly

I pulled into the garage this afternoon a little after 1:00, with the following list of urgent concerns.

1. Corey needed me to e-mail him some directions immediately; he was going to be leaving the office in 5 minutes.
2. I had two Trader Joe’s bags in the back of the mini-van.
3. One was packed with frozen vegetables, which had already been in the car for two hours.
4. The other was packed with fresh flowers, which had been out of water for two hours; I could see the tulips wilting.
5. Teyla had a stinky diaper.
6. She was also throwing a fit because I wouldn’t give her the churro she could see in the front seat.
7. Connor was halfway through his quesadilla lunch and needed something to drink ASAP lest he choke and die.
8. I really, really needed to go to the bathroom.
9. I was really, really hungry. My footlong tuna Subway I had just picked up was calling my name.
10. The phone was ringing.

    Top priority would be choking kid, then emailing hubby, then bathroom, for sure!

    OK, if the kids was ACTUALLY choking, then kid first, but if you just are saying that to emphasize how thirsty he was, then he can wait. Husband first. Then diaper. Either ignore the fit, or put her somewhere (like her room) until she is done with fit. Bathroom, then groceries/flowers, then check the answering machine to see who called, while you eat your sandwich.

    Wow, does that ever sound familiar. And it all seems that much overwhelming when you’re SO HUNGRY!

    I would use the bathroom and eat….I cant concentrate if hungry and i get mighty irritable and unreasonable! than i will chuck off the dirty diaper and let her run naked while i give Connor a drink and send over the directions after which i take care of flowers and veggies and back to teyla for a new diaper 🙂

    I would take the laptop to the bathroom and e-mail the hubby while peeing. Then I’d stick the flowers in a vase and grab the frozen stuff. Next, diaper, churro, water. Then sit down and eat your meal while the kids watch TV and you check the voicemail!

    grab a bottle of water as run thru the kitchen with both bags, toss one bag in the freezer, find the directions while you change the diaper on the floor all while doing the pee-pee dance. That’s how I would try to do it.
