Feel Like a Juggler?

As my sidebar says, I feel like my life takes me in I have a special affinity for plate spinners and jugglers.

Aaaaannnnd noooowwww..because this guy is JUST TOO GOOD...weeeeee preseeeennnt:

a juggler!

You have to have the sound on, and give him 30 seconds or so to really get going before you pass judgment.

Oh, and don't forget to call the kids! (Or the guy or gal in the next cubicle. C'mon, it's Friday!)

Thanks to Jonathan L. for the link!

that was incredible. I bookmarked it to show my husband later.

I love the plate spinning comments. People often ask me how I do everything that I do. And sometimes I wonder myself. But I do believe that with each new task or project or committee or involvement or even each new child, you slightly reorganize your life in such a way as to keep all those plates in the air.

Can you remember that overwhelmed feeling you had with one little baby at home -- that feeling that you'd never master this parenting thing, that feeling that you couldn't handle it? And think now of what life is like if all the older ones are out of the house and you're home alone with the littlest. It is nothing short of peaceful, calm and comfortable, right?

Juggling is not my thing. i haven't ever really been impressed with it at all. Until now. That guy is amazing. It went on and on, and I didn't even think of stopping it before he was through. what a talented guy!

jlkm--I found that plate-spinning article just by googling. It did have some good points!

People often say to me "Six kids--how do you do it?" I always say, "One at a time." Like you said, you just rearrange a little bit to make room!
