Divided attention - (04/08/15)

Multi-tasking is a buzzword that is tossed around by people who are doing too many things. Studies have shown that it is impossible to focus on more than one thing at any given time no matter how many tabs you have open on your browser or notifications on your phone. This goes for kids too.

When you have more than one kid doesn't matter if they are all the same age or they've been spaced out a pace you can only really focus on one (outside of a pig pile, anyway). But they will try to trick you or at least argue that you should be able to do more than one thing at a time. And maybe, if they try really, really extra hard, they can actually make it happen. Sometimes, I like to think if I try really, really hard I can actually be in three places at once so long as one of them is on a tropical beach.
