I am a hopeless multitasker.
I cannot stand to do just one thing at a time. I leave every faculty meeting with a detailed grocery list. I blog while nursing baby C. But I've met my match. Yes, the breastpump.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to pump milk and accomplish a secondary task that a gal can feel proud of. If you've never been hooked up to one of these beauties, should know that it takes two hands on-deck at all times.
What makes this situation so awful is that I pump at work several times a day. So I'm staring at so many tasks that need my attention, and unable to do any of them.
I have tried a few secondary tasks and failed. My least embarrassing failure was trying to text with my nose. My nasal dexterity just wasn't up for the task. And I think I may have licked my desk. That wouldn't be such a problem if I wasn't an elementary teacher. But since it's flu season, I'm giving up on that one.
I have started drinking Diet Dr Pepper through a straw while I pump. It works, but it doesn't give me the satisfaction that true multitasking does.
I need help, ladies! Give me your best suggestion of what I can do hands-free while milking myself.
