Interruptibility, or “what exactly are you moms so busy doing?”

This. (Via the always exactly right Blue Milk.)

You are busy being interrupted. You are busy responding. It’s not that you’re not doing anything, it’s that you aren’t getting anything done. And it’s hard. It’s really hard.

Which is one reason the blog continues so neglected, incidentally. As it happens, WordPress saw fit to throw the following Anais Nin quote before me while publishing this: “My ideas come to me not in the middle of writing, but in the middle of living.” Yes, I am full of ideas. Full of bloggity conversations. However, too much living (mothering) is happening for me to actually sit down and write them. Is pity. Is how it is.
