Why isn't mother-ing an Olympic sport?

Typing with one hand while using other hand and various other body parts to wrestle seven-month old away from the computer, the phone, and everything else on the desk. (While remaining typo-free.)

Chasing after mobile baby and going to the bathroom (simultaneously).

Keeping lunch a calm affair by preparing your own lunch with one hand, and baby's lunch with the other, then feeding and wiping baby with one hand while devouring your lunch with the other.

Taking a shower and playing peek-a-boo and singing silly songs to keep infant occupied (occasionally hanging out of the shower to wipe a runny nose).

Sometimes I wonder how people have more than one!
