just finished the baby's hat- G started it, the one on the bottom left, green/brown; so in last 4 weeks I've done these 5...

"The World would come to a halt..."

she states bodly, "... if women weren't multi-taskers", she types, as she feeds the baby, the cat, drinks her coffee, gathers her notes for the article she is writing on slowing down and simplifying, makes up a quick "menu" on a paper plate so her homeschooled daughter can practice reading before breakfast, tweets good morning, plays pat-a-cake with the baby, puts a flower in her hair for fun, and writes her blog.

The world wide web spins out the stories of such super-moms. Creating streams of consciousness and e-commerce {insert a cheer for the 1st grader sounding out "scrambled"} consortiums through their connections online and in communities. {logs into Facebook, baby squeals, feeds her another bite}.

The spirit of entrepreuseship is alive and well in the soc-net circles that sprout up around every interest, hobby or belief system. {she makes cornbread mush with berries and milk for the long haired one, shovels a few bites of the same concoction with bananas into her own mouth, gulps more coffee, picks up the toast the baby has launched from her podium whilst chirping out a high pitched series of squeals- delight or disdain? Still wearing her robe at 10:24 the multitasker starts a grocery list and retrieves banana from her monitor, noting to self that baby doesn't like banana these days...}

Take the newest trend, microblogging-, sites such as Twitter are experiencing growth as more and more people discover the entertainment value of "what [others are] doing right now?" {a whiny plea to "stay home all day 'cause its rainy, and cold" is silenced with a glance and quickly replaced with a well supported opening argument-basically stating that for the best of baby and optimal fun we should consider not going anywhere. The almost 7 year old learns fast.}

{Breakfast is finished, dishes await- and the would be writer thinks she should add hyperlinks, find supporting statistics, interview a few experts, fill in some personal anecdotes and publish an article on this fascinating topic, as the still 6 year old screeches about how crazy her mothers is to eat bananas on cornbread and dances around the table chanting ba-na-na-n-a-na-n-aa-a... She thinks how much she'd like to search for an ergo carrier on The Baby Wearer, and the almost 1 year old claps in glee. The woman takes her last sip of coffee, whilst the last few keys click out these words}.

I'm it!


Is the topic of this meme- thanks for tagging me, 2TooManyHats (a fellow homeschool mom, who I love to follow on twitter!)

Seven is certainly in my consciousness for me right now, methinks I oughta head out to Vegas...

1. We were looking at the 7 continents in homeschool this morning
2. I have worked at 7 other Starbucks stores
3. G is turning 7 in 20 days
4. G has lost 4 teeth & J has grown 3 (equals 7!)
5. There are 7 letters in my first name
6. In 1997 I eloped with my husband after knowing him only 7months (we dated for 2 months and in 2 months it'll be 12 years!)
7. Just the other day I made a list of 7 religions and decided to learn something about each before my morning meditation. (Today being Monday I read from the Dalai Lama's book How To Practice)

tagging some of my favorite homeschoolers blogs:
...because I want to know more about what's going on in their world!

Wii Fit Mommiis

I'm so excited... and I just can't hide it!

Check out what Wii Fit Mommiis is up to tonight at 5 on twitter...

I really want to participate in this grand adventure, but don't yet own a Wii- there is no way we can afford one in our current situation so I am hoping to win it.

It would sure motivate me to lose this extra baby weight... or is it Starbucks pastry and Gingersnap Latte weight? ... or maybe just stress induced... or genetic?

Whatever I want to be a Skinii Mommii!!
