There aren't enough hours in the day to separate everything out, so you are constantly busy and only ever giving a tiny portion of your attention to anything you're doing. Sure, maybe you just accidentally filled a baby bottle with coffee, but you noticed before anything bad happened. Nothing to see here. Look away.
I get up early to get a jump on my projects before the kids wake up, and I don't mean to stay in my pajamas until lunch time, but sometimes it just sort of happens. The other day I had a video call so I put on some make-up and my daughter looked at me in total confusion and said, "Mom, why'd you decorate your face?"
7. There is no one around to ask for help
When everything is out of control, the kids are screaming, and the deadlines are piling up, you are pretty much shit out of luck. There is no one around to pick up the slack or grab something for you real quick. You just have to take it one thing at a time and hope you don't self-destruct. You're the boss-ish! You've got this (sort of)!
