There will be no pictures to help along with this blog. Just use your imagination.

Dave was traveling for work, so I was left to get both kids to bed. Neither are difficult, but being that they generally go down about the same time and Theo nurses to sleep, the juggling can be difficult.
He is also in the easily distracted time, which adds to the fun when Sophia wants to "entertain" her little brother. Sigh...

So there we are in Theo's room. I'm nursing Theo and Sophia is hanging out playing on the floor. Before her bath, we always do "naked butt time" with no diaper to let her air out. So I ask her to take her diaper off, which she does willingly. To my surprise, she has a poopy diaper. And thus, a poopy behind that need cleaning.

So I'm in the rocking chair and can reach the wipes. The only way for this to happen and to have any hope of Theo going down is to clean her bottom while still nursing Theo. That and I don't want poop on the rug, which she so wants to sit on to continue playing. She has recently taken to "doing yoga" and stretching with me, so upon request Sophia happily assumes "Downward Dog" so I can clean her bum and then she returns to playing.

Luckily, I can also reach the hand sanitizer as well

Theo quickly conks out, I wash my hands again with actual running water and on to the bedtime routine with Sophia.

Yup. Moms = multi-taskers.
