If I Had Three Pairs of Hands

I need to start the laundry. I have the rolling cart plus a basket of clothes to take downstairs.

I need to eat breakfast and to feed Sam. This means leaving the house because we are kind of out of things he will eat at the moment. Except chocolate and corn chips, but we’re running low on both. Uh, I mean. He needs protein.

I was thinking I could drop off the laundry and then walk to Cactus and get him some rice and beans and me some huevos rancheros. But here’s the thing: I want to put him in the stroller for that walk. And here’s the other thing: I can’t push the stroller, pull the laundry cart, and carry the laundry basket all at once. I’m not even sure I can do two of the above at the same time.

So I need some extra pairs of hands. Preferably attached to arms.

    You need a robot! A helpful Robot. Maybe a simple prototype that could push a stroller and build up to one that does the wash for you. Yes. A robot is the answer.

    A friend of mine once said that all the weight gained in pregnancy would really be more useful in the long run if we grew something like an extra arm. I’ll tell her she is still right :)

    But a robot would totally work too, and probably look less weird.

    Since I can’t actually walk for a few days, you can certainly borrow my arms! I’m bored shitless.
