I'm an Octopus

The picture shows how SAHM's can be an octopus sometimes. Well, hubby told me one time that I'm an octopus coz I was doing more than one thing at the same time and he was impressed. He said that he can't be an octopus coz he can only do one thing at a time. hahaha That made me laugh and he was right on that. Sometimes if he hands me stuff to carry and I was carrying something already I tease him and said "I don't want to be an octopus today". hahaha Even my sister told me once "so you're now like Leah Salonga" while we're having a conversation on the phone coz I was doing something else while talking to her on the phone. It was a movie of Leah Salonga and Aga where Leah came here in US and got a good job and very busy that she was putting socks on while talking on the phone. I forgot the title of the movie but it's a nice one. Well, that's our life here in US especially if you don't have a family or relatives who can help to take care of your baby. So now I'm use to talking on the phone while doing something else whether I'm washing dishes, putting away dishes from the dishwasher, washing clothes, hanging clothes, folding clothes, cooking, nursing and etc. It's tough but who wants to pay for somebody to do things that you think you can do? Not me. hehe Though hubby is ok if I can't clean the house but I want to accomplish something everyday. Hubby said that he knows Claira is a handful already but I think we the SAHM's thought that it's our responsibility to take care of everything. That's the reason why Oprah said that the average salary of a SAHM (if the SAHM has a salary for the hours we spend working) is I think if I'm right it was $168,000 more or less in 1 year. That's a lot of money! Again, SAHM rocks! ^_^
