5 Parenting Tasks I'd Like to Outsource to a Professional from TheStir.com
  1. Cutting my kids' fingernails

  2. After accidentally snipping my infant son's finger in the process and seeing a river of blood flowing that I thought would surely lead to his demise, I've never warmed to this task. Plus, they grow so damn fast, it seems like a job that never ends.

  3. Taking my kids into public restrooms

  4. The smells, the maneuvering, the loooong stints waiting for them to go. If only there was a button in stores you could push, and some (highly screened) potty assistant would come take your kids for you -- especially when you're in line, ready to check out, and they have to go NOW!

  5. Putting my kids in and taking them out of the car

  6. In the heat, in the cold, the struggles while I'm precariously balancing a pizza box and a gallon of milk, and the "I want to do it myself!" are enough to drive me mad some days. I'd gladly do the driving if someone could just get them in and out of the car safely each time.

  7. Putting my son's cleats on

  8. For whatever reason, this task makes us both sweat as I push, pull, and finally maneuver his foot into them. Same goes for shin guards. Oh, and maybe someone to teach him to tie his shoe while we're at it.

  9. Updating their baby books

  10. I know, I know. I want to, but while I'm Martha Stewart in my mind, their books are pathetic in reality. If only someone could just record and organize their milestones and highlights, they might not hate me someday when they compare their bare books next to those of their friends who grew up with those scrapbooking moms.
