I am a multi-tasking mom

According to Wikipedia, "Human multi-tasking or multitasking is the performance by an individual of appearing to handle more than one task at the same time. "

Multi-tasking is every mom's bestfriend. Multi-tasking helps me do all chores and errands that I have to finish in any given day. At 5am this morning, while taking a shower, I was instructing my son (over and over again) to finish his cereals (as well as to chew and not just swallow it because that's what he usually does when I tell him to hurry up). A while ago, I was doing the laundry and watching the morning news. Now, I am eating breakfast and updating my blog. Those are just some examples of my multi-tasking skills.

A study done by the American Psychological Association shows that multi-tasking costs time especially when shifting to less familiar tasks. I guess that study was done without mom's on their mind. All the tasks that I do everyday are so familiar with me already I can do it with my eyes closed.

I'm pretty sure all mom's will agree with me. Care to object, anyone?

Ok beat this:

blogging, breakfast, teaching the kids, instructing them to eat.. ahehe

magaling nga ang mga mommy sa multitasking :)

sometimes I do the laundry, cook the food and blog haha

ang hirap naman to have a contract with them when it comes to hand held gaming devices.. dito sa bahay usapan, 5 to 7 everyday pede sila maglaro pero lumalagpas din hehe

Make or Break

multi tasking is beneficial really...it doesn't cost time for me, infact it saves time!

I noticed though that not everyone can do that...some have to focus on a certain task or else not being able to give her/his 100%. either that she/he loses her concentration on the other task or with struggle uses more time than she can individually.

...and so, lucky are those who can accomplish this. =)lucky us!
