Don't forget to whistle while you work kids!
Two weeks ago on a particularly crazed afternoon, I felt despair over the fact that, despite working non-stop all day, I wasn't going to get through even half of my to do list. Our house was a mess. I had no idea what we were having for dinner. My daughter had a fifth grade essay that still needed to get done. I had three hours of work to finish after I put the kids to bed. I was drowning. I texted my husband and said, "I need an assistant." He replied, "You have three assistants. You're just not effectively managing their work flow." How annoying is that comment? And how annoying is it that he is right. Geez. I do everything for my kids. I didn't really intend for that to be the case but things have just kind of evolved to a place where I do, do, do instead of delegate, delegate, delegate. The bottom line is that I've recently realized that I need to make my kids work harder if we are going to make things happen around here...
