Multi-taskin' Mama

I remember being in the ultrasound room when we found out we were having twins. The second thing the ultrasound tech told me "you're going to need to be really organized." Ok, I'm sort of middle of the road on that. For some things I'm super organized, for others not so much. It's a matter of priority for me. For example, I think it's more important I hang out and play with my kids as opposed to having house that is insanely clean. I try to keep it sorta clean, but I'm just not a psycho about it. Who cares?! Plus, it makes me uncomfortable to be in a house that is super clean.
This is a common scene at our house. Sometimes a necessity, sometimes a timesaver. :)

Anyway, I've been trying to be more organized and efficient since we've all been home together. I try to get Blake's meds all measured out and ready to go at nite for the next morning. I try to get as much of Blake's dialysis stuff done before we go to the baseball game so it will be less chaotic when we get home. I try to make bathtime organized. Sometimes I feel like I'm doing 12 things at once, but later when things are ready to go it makes it all worth it.

So, if any of you multi-tasking/organized moms out there have any tips/tricks to share with me, please do! I would love to hear them.

I think you are doing a fabulous job! I marvel at how calm and collective you've handled everything from day one! I read this line once and it's become my philosophy on having a clean home..."I'd rather live in a home where I can write the words Home Sweet Home in the dust than a home that's too clean to let loose, live, and have fun in!"

You are doing great! i agree getting stuff ready adn prepared is better for you when it comes. For example bath time, if you have everything ready to go clothes, lotions, dipaers, etc then it will go faster and more calm for you and everyone doing the bath. For feeding time it is always good to get prepared ahead if possible but not always possible with meds, formula and such. you are doing great just stay calm and relaxed and everythign will fall into place. I agree on the house thing, I used to be so much my house has to be perfect now I would rather play with the boys and hang with JAred when boys are in bed. My house is still pretty clean but not like it used to be. i guess things change when you have kids. Before the boys I just had nothing better to do then to clean all the time:). Great job, hope to meet the boys soon!
