Seriously… I thought I was a bit forgetful during my pregnancy (more so towards the end)… but with an 11 week old I’m having SERIOUS difficulty in locating the grey matter that used to abide in my skull!!!
The other day I was chatting to my husband about how our son went during the day and I asked him what the time was so that I could establish when he was likely to wake for his next feed… all good (thankfully the benefit of feeding my son wherever I am in the house is that it’s easier to remember the last feed!). So in the next breath I moved to thinking about what we were going to watch on TV and asked my husband what the time was so I knew when to turn on the TV. He stopped… looked at me quizzically and said “Two seconds after the last time you asked”… I was THOROUGHLY confused and had to get him to explain what had just happened!!! Needless to say, once I understood what had just happened… I still had to say, “Oh, ok… well, what was your answer?”
Then there is the recurring case of the missing telephone… the first time it happened, I went to the kitchen to get the phone and it wasn’t there! I proceeded to get rather annoyed with my husband… repeating what I felt I’d said a million times before to him (but CLEARLY wasn’t sinking in), “There is a place for everything, and everything in its place”. Finally found the phone in the study… and after a while had to sheepishly admit that it WASN’T in fact my husband who had left the phone there… it was me! What has happened to my brain?!?!?!
All I can say is… I wish I could find my *oh shiny*!
