Before becoming a mother, I never knew the wealth of impossible choices that awaited me.

take a shower OR sleep

eat lunch OR go to the bathroom

brush my teeth OR put on deodorant

fix my hair OR apply make-up

get food at the grocery store OR take the baby to the doctor

And that doesn't even consider these less-critical but equally impossible choices!

sweep up the piles of dog hair drifting around the house OR fold and put away the mountain of laundry growing on what was once your bed

spend five minutes actually looking at your husband's face OR spend five minutes fixing a dinner that does not involve a drive-thru window

attempt to exercise while holding the baby OR attempt to clean two weeks' worth of dishes while holding the baby

Oh, the decisions you'll make! Every day is quite the adventure!
