Multitasking is something I do.  It is what a lot of people do.  But honestly, we all suck at it. 
This summer, multitasking took a back seat to real life.  And real stuff.  But now with the start of school (a week ago), I have begun to multitask all day long.  And screw a lot of stuff up on a daily basis. 

My multitasking kind of morning start (6:30am - 7:00am):
check email (mainly school messages)
boil eggs
clean the smallest bathroom
start a load of pink hued clothing -- because we have a lot of PINK
listen for the littlest little
hold the middle little
pack oldest little's lunch

* email (nothing from school or teacher but got sidetracked with Pottery Barn Kids Gear Sale)
* eggs are boiled (for longer than 10 minutes... and harder than shit to remove from their shells)
* smallest bathroom (reloaded the toilet paper)
* washer loaded and started (forgot several articles of clothing since they were strewn from one end of the house to the other)
* littlest little still sleeping (as far as I know)
* middle little in a puddled heap on the floor next to me
* oldest little got a smorgasbord of leftover crap to eat for lunch

So, multitasking -- it works, just not very well for me!
