Imagine you’re juggling three balls. Even if you can’t juggle, just try to picture it. Three nice, even, same-size balls designed for juggling.
Then someone tosses you another ball. Okay, you’re managing. You’ve seen people juggle four balls before. It could work.
Now there are ten balls.
Now you’re standing on your head and have had no sleep while still trying to juggle.
Are we describing parenting yet?
