{and yet, probably not}

Oh, dear readers, has it been that long since I've last blogged?

I guess it has...

Why have I abandoned Mean Mommy Academy these past couple months?  Let's blame it on life, pregnancy and THE BRAIN.

I've lost it.

My mind, that is.  I can't think like a normal human being anymore.  And the sad thing is, I am fully aware that I have lost my mind.  It would be different if I was blissfully unaware that I forget things, but I am painfully reminded daily.  DAILY people.

:: snacks that belong in my son's backpack are still on the counter AFTER I have dropped him off at school.

:: forgetting to tell Mr. Smith that said son needs to be picked up from the park and NOT the church after scouts is over, thus resulting in a panicked father who is about to call the authorities, but happened to call me first.  True Story.

:: forgetting the names of my own children.  They now answer to "You".

:: making biscuits for dinner and as I am adding the last ingredient, realize I was reading/making the wrong recipe. Who does that?!

:: forgetting to put on my Awesome Pants in the morning.  Thus resulting in less-awesome days.

:: leaving the box of crafts to display at church in the truck.  For all of church.

:: forgetting what things are called like protractor, tape measure, Bruce Willis...

:: don't even THINK about asking me what day it is.  Actually you can right this second because it says on my computer.

:: I won't be surprised if one time I forget that the date and time is displayed on my computer.

:: I've always struggled with doing math without a calculator.  I don't struggle anymore.  I've completely hit a brick wall.  And have forgotten where I keep the calculator.

:: I have managed to forget entire conversations.

:: and birthdays.

:: and names.  {seriously, who forgets Bruce Willis??} ;)

...and the list goes on.

What crazy things has motherhood made you forget?

If its any consolation, your come back post was well worth the wait! I'm still laughing. Pregnancy and motherhood should come with warning labels like, "warning: becoming a mother will result in loss of brain function!"

I'm almost eight months pregnant right now and I feel like I was just reading my life story!!! Especially the names one. I was trying to get the attention of my oldest son yesterday and went through the other two chidlren's names (including my very-girl daughter's name), and nearly the cat's name, before I finally came up with the right one. He's the oldest. Out of all of them, shouldn't his name be the one I remember the most? And I'm famous around here for walking ACROSS a room (not even into a different room) and forgetting what I went to that spot to get. That's a daily occurrence. Often happening multiple times a day. It drives me crazy!

yep, that's what 4 pregnancies has done to this brain :)

Except... I could never forget Bruce Willis. Shame on you.
