Symptom of motherhood

What does it mean when you're going to the bathroom and you wonder if you should blow your nose while you're sitting there or wait until you're done ... and then you decide to wait until you're done ... and then think that's selfish of you not to multitask?!

Oh, I relate! Post-baby, even the smallest things seem like luxuries...a warm shower, a solitary trip to the bathroom, even housecleaning. It's funny how things change.

I have gotten into the habit of not closing the door. My husband is always wondering why ... Geez I don't know is it because when I go to the bathroom I usually have a preschooler needing a glass of water and a baby trying to pull himself up ... multitasking ... always

There's nothing like the efficiency of a mother. We couldn't possibly do just one thing at a time!!

Thanks again for a good laugh. I so remember those days.

Multitask and motherhood go hand in hand.

Maybe I'm opening up way too much here but yesterday I went in to get ready for bed and I sat there for about three minutes before it dawned on me that I was on a toilet and that I'd rather forgot why I was there. My mind was racing over all the things I had to do next without noticing what I was actually supposed to be doing at the moment. I'm sick I tell you. :)

Hahahaha! I liked Scribbit's story too.

Fortunately I am at the the stage where I can blow my nose anywhere/anytime I like, guilt free - as long as I mute my mike first! I wasn't thinking and blew on stage during Worship Team practice this past week...NOT a pretty sound!

Oh I hear you. Isn't that lovely that we're all nuts? Must be another symptom.

No one but a mother would think that! We're so accustomed to sacrificing for our children that we're almost conditioned to believe we don't deserve even life's smallest luxuries (such as taking 15 seconds after using the bathroom to blow one's nose)!

That's a riot. I've almost fallen asleep on the toilet from exhaustion but my husband would never understand.

Once you've had a few kids, blowing your nose on the toilet can help speed along the peeing process. That's multitasking and efficiency-boosting, all in one.

Stupid, weak pelvic floor.

If I were in that situation, all I would have to do is ask the preschooler that never fails to follow me to the bathroom!

Haha! I find it funny. Just don't forget to multi-task the next time around.

Oh, yes. The first sign. Best to just accept what is to come -- motherhood-induced insanity.

LMAO. This is so sad. And yet so true.

My husband keeps saying to me: NO! I can't multitask.

I *can* multitask. I think it's an art that only mothers know.

I just wish I could go to the bathroom in privacy!

So funny - and I've done the same thing. My husband walked past me in the bathroom a few weeks ago with the FUNNIEST look on his face - because there I sat, taking off my nail polish. I was like, "What, you don't multitask when you get a free moment in the bathroom?" I guess it's just a mom thing!
