One-Handed Mama

On my first day home alone with Miss KP I wondered how on earth I'd do "normal" everyday tasks with a newborn attached to me. In just two short weeks I "have it all figured out" and here is a short list of things I can now do "one-handed" aka with Kendall in tow.
  • Make & eat a bagel. This includes toasting and cream-cheesing.
  • Put on make-up. This was interesting and I apologize to anyone that saw me that day.
  • Make a margarita. Does this make me a bad mom?
  • Swiffer. Two white, fluffy dogs make this VERY necessary.
  • Make babbas. Obviously this was the FIRST thing I learned to master with one hand.
  • Update Facebook. Again, very necessary.
  • Tend to the fur babies. This includes, but is not limited to, feeding, letting out, and petting.
  • Read a book. I'm trying to familiarize myself with What To Expect In The First Year.
  • Write this entire blog post. Your welcome.


  1. Way to go! I'm most impressed with spreading cream cheese on the bagel! =P

  2. I have cleaned half of my house while holding a baby!! But the bagel one and margarita one is definitely impressive haha! A margarita right about now sounds good after my night.

  3. Good work! Learning how to make a margarita one handed is definitely necessary :)

  4. haha, i love it. how come husbands can't do these things one-handed? my husband comes home, immediately grabs C to snug with.. and asks me to do everything! im like, HOW DO YOU THINK I FUNCTION ALL DAY WITHOUT YOU?!?!?

  5. You are so funny... I love the margarita making with one hand, you go girl! OF COURSE that doesn't make you a bad mom! Thanks for keeping up with your blog, I am loving seeing how it is all going with you!
