Pregnant Working Mom Shows Off Insane Multitasking Skills (#ItsHandled)

Dr. Megan Meier is an awesome mom -- and expectant mother -- whose post has gone viral

In case you didn't know it, moms have superpowers. And while we'll likely never get a cameo in an Avengers movie (their loss), just know that each and every one of us is a total badass -- and totally rock. Dr. Megan Meier's viral multitasking Facebook photo is all sorts of amazing and an encouraging reminder that mothers can (and will) rise to every occasion.

With her husband out of town and her childcare falling through (ugh, who hasn't been here?), this Oklahoma mom and sports medicine physician packed up her medical supplies and her 3-year-old daughter and headed off to Putnam City North High School to help any football players in need.

And, oh yeah, Mom is 35 weeks pregnant. (Say whaatt?)

As Dr. Meier writes on Facebook, "I really believe that you can have it all and find a great balance to a multi-faceted career and life. However, it takes a lot of hard work and improvisation at times."

We see you, Mama!

Seeing Dr. Meier, in all of her multitasking glory, really warmed my heart. Sure, it's a pic of an expectant mother with a tot ... but I can totally see it in one of those motivational books people read to help them get through the day.

I can't tell you how many times I freak about trying to get both work and everyday tasks done with 2- and 1-year-old boys. I'm sure I look a hot mess and folks question why I even bother.

Sometimes, you have to roll up your sleeves to get sh*t done as a parent -- and this is a perfect representation of that fact.

Whether you're an expectant mom, a new mom, a single mom, a SAHM, or a working mother, who's constantly questioning whether you can keep up with your kid's life's demands, please realize you're not alone -- and that you're capable of taking care of business.

(High fives all around.)

Thanks for the confidence boost, Megan!
