Dear Kid,

It’s Saturday. It should be a day of rest and relaxation and other fun “r” words.

This is the LOOK I am giving my To Do List in the hope that it will be intimidated and get itself done without help from me. DearKidLoveMom.comBut as I look at my To Do List (note that it doesn’t start with an “r”), I seem to have approximately 83 hours worth of tasks to fit into today.

And that doesn’t even include lunch.

It is going to be a crowded day.

I gave serious consideration to how to multi-task. After half a cup of coffee I decided that showering while typing a blog is probably a bad idea.

I gave serious consideration to delegation. Pi has left for most of the day, the Puppy is curled up sleeping, and Dad is eager to help. Dishwasher loading delegated. Now I’m down to 82.5 hours worth of To Dos.

To be fair, he offered to help with other things. The problem is that the other things are either already on his list or would take me longer to explain (and possibly re-do) than it would take just to do in the first place.

Just to be clear, no, you may not delegate studying for your classes.

Have a fab day, kiddo. Stay warm.

Love, Mom
