Role layered upon role today, and at one point, while trying to draft a coherent e-mail, answer the phone and keep track of the kids, Crash Kid appeared and wanted me to surrender the laptop to him, so that he could watch a film. I told him that my brain was going to implode. He patted my hand, picked up a marker sitting on the table and proceeded to put it to my forehead and making sucking noises. When I asked what he was doing, he said "I'm sucking out the dead brain cells so your head won't implode!" It had the desired effect and I cracked up -- but it made me wonder, is all this multi-tasking really making richer neural connections, or just killing all my brain cells?
Meanwhile, Geeky Mom is loosing her mind over the laundry and other "Domestic Duties". Maybe I can lend her Crash Kid's brain sucking device?
