Why juggling everything at once seems so hard to do?
I must admit, I am the perfect juggler. I juggle so well, that even Zippo the circus would be impressed and so many of us all do on a daily basis. Whether juggling dropping the kids of on the school run, even though we barely have enough time to get them ready and out through the front door, we still manage to get it done. Although, we quickly brush our teeth, and splash some water over our faces and attempt to put a comb through our half matted half combed hair, and then zoom out of the front door faster than speedy Gonzales, we still get the job done. Then there is the housework, the cooking, the cleaning, working part-time or full -time hours, being a stay at home parent, having zero sleep, waking up then doing the whole thing all over again. Life is no picnic and it’s definitely not an easy job, but somebody’s got to do it and unfortunately, that somebody has to be me. And then there’s the kids. There is always something that they want or need, like the other day when they both told me that they were bored and hungry. I’m still left wondering how they could quite possibly be bored and hungry all at the same time. It’s mind boggling. I think my kids think I’m a robot, and that I can create an adventurous day out, every single week, plus weekend and then, create a gourmet meal of their choice every day of the week. It’s never ending, and after a week’s worth of juggling and being mind boggled by the kids. I think it’s safe to say that I am completely juggled out. Zippo the Circus is a walk in the park compared to this Juggler.
