"I'm a Zen Mommy right now."
My kids translate that as --I can only do one thing at a time and if I add one more thing my head may explode! Or I'll forget something or someone. Or I will just end up doing a job that is not my best. My practice is to give 100% in everything I do.
When I am a Zen Mommy I am much better to meet the needs of my kids and the never-ending demands of the day.
Honestly, it doesn't come as first nature. I need to be intentional and work at doing just one thing at a time. I grew up multitasking. Now that I'm "mature" I understand that it is best if I do just one thing.
