I Am Most Definitely NOT Superwoman

How do other mothers do it? I'm still struggling with getting sh*t done. Am I the only one with a baby that clings on for dear life? I have to be in her line of vision at all times. If I'm in the kitchen too long she gets fussy. When I go to the bathroom, I take her with me. If I'm doing the laundry, I wrap her in the Moby.

I finally made the decision to outsource the housecleaning (love it and recommend it). In the attempts I've made I haven't gotten very far. I can't clean floors and bathtubs with her in the Moby (I am researching babywearing for the back so maybe that won't be a problem much longer). I haven't seen the bottom of the laundry basket in about 3 months. There are paper piles everywhere. This isn't her doing. We've always had a mountain of mail but I can't shred near her because she wants to sit on my lap with the grabby hands.

Yesterday I made a baked dish. I got tired of saying I can't and decided to just do it. I normally stick to meals that are quick with minimum cutting involved. This was tres difficile! She's all hands and tried to bungee out of the wrap many times while I'm cutting and working around hot pots. I had an oil splatter that sent me running from the kitchen covering her head. I finally had to put her down and ignore the whining when it was time to open the oven. Don't think I'll be doing this again anytime soon.

I made this though. It's good and 100% vegan. It's loaded with faux sausage, pepperoni, and cheese.
A pic just because.
I can't resist that face.
I love her.

How does it work in your home? Are you a novice mother? Mother to a toddler? Multiple children? Twins (God Bless you)? How do you get sh*t done?
