new math.

Somedays just sing.  I drop the kids at school, go for a run, volunteer in the kindergarten class for an hour, and manage to get dinner in the oven before my (third) school pick up of the day.

Other times, it feels like I'm juggling incompatible needs and failing miserably.

For example:

You have one introverted 8 year-old who desperately wants time alone with her mama and a little sister who desperately needs a nap do you
a.  let little sister nap, ruining the chance for a sweet early bed time and alone time for the big sister
or
b.  keep little sister awake, even though the thought of this makes you want to stab yourself in the eye, knowing that she will go to bed at 6:30 and you and big sister can blissfully paint your nails alone.

Another, also from today:

If you have promised a playdate to your sporty-spice son, do you let him have his friend over even though it means
a.  introverted big sister is going to freak out
b.  wild woman little sister is going to be a menace
c.  mom may want to stab herself in the eye
d.  all of the above

And finally,

Your dear friend who constantly watches your kid asks if she can drop her daughter off during basketball practice tonight during the planned "nail painting portion" of big sister's alone time with her mama.  Do you
a.  say, "sure, the more the merrier!"
b.  say, "no, big sister needs alone time."
c.  stab yourself in the eye.

c. stab yourself in the eye

If you're not sure, aren't you always supposed to choose 'c'? Good luck. Let me know if you need an eye patch (or two)...
