The Most Efficient Man

No, this is not a post about how lucky I am so have a Mr. Mom husband. Mine is just as normal as yours... sort of. ;>) This is instead a post about how we women are superior to men. Even better... right?!?

Today I was bitching to Brian about how I need more help around the house with me working again. For those of you who missed it I will be re-joining the working world however I will only be tied to the desk in our sunroom whilst the girls are napping (yup, those 5 precious minutes a day). Ok, seriously now. I have started back to work and will be teaching online courses from home.

Back to the point now. This evening I had some work to do so we put the girls to bed and Brian was going to do the housework I usually do. I gave him a "honey-do" list and he set off to work. At the end of the night as I sat folding the laundry (in his defense I have a very my way or the highway mentality about folding, not sure why) and looking at the million things that I forgot to put on the list I had a thought. It occurred to me that even the most efficient of men is only about half as efficient as a woman. If we were going to have a contest between a man and his wife to see who was more efficient at house work and childcare we would have to tie the womans hands and feet and give her a couple shots of tequila to make it fair. Now don't get me wrong, Bry is as helpful a man as they come. It just amazes me how much better we woman are at juggling and multi-tasking. When a woman is sitting in front of the TV or computer what men don't realize is that she is probably also working through two loads of laundry, running the dishwasher, thinking about her schedule, kids, work and to do list while talking on the phone and returning e-mails. We women are truly an amazing species. I say we should all give ourselves a big pat on the back.

So was this the most jarggled post or what? I guess me working and raising kids has made me even more of a scatterbrain.

Kristen, I kid you not that I spent last night folding 3 baskets of laundry WHILE POOPING! My husband thought I was nuts, but there were 2 tasks and only one required hands!

Kristen 11:14 PM  

LOL, :>). Now that is what I call multi-tasking!

I totally agree!

They're all the same. It's just obvious that we as women are more efficient. Too bad we can't teach them otherwise.

And too funny about Megan's comment.
