Let Us Pause For Yet Another Mommy Moment

I'm not sure whether it's the sleep deprivation (Little One is cutting two more teeth), the crazy busy life on the farm, working off the farm, working a bunch of freelance gigs, running after a 19 month old who only has two speeds (fast and faster!), or a combination of all of the above that has me somewhat absentminded lately.

I hosted Father's Day dinner at our house on Sunday. My lovely friend, Maddy's Mommy and I were in the kitchen when we had this conversation:

Maddy's Mommy: I can't believe Maddy will be two soon! We have to start planning her birthday party.

Me: Wow! That's right! Two already! Her birthday is coming up soon! What does she want or need for her birthday?

MM: Hmmm...I don't know.

Me: Oh! Would you kill me if I got her something Elmo? I know she loves Elmo!

MM: No. I'd kill you if you got her something Dora or Barney though!

Me: Ha! I won't get her anything Dora or Barney! Don't worry. Oh! I saw something for her birthday when we were in "The Biggest City close to the Island"!!!

MM: Really? What was it?

Me: It's an Elmo...something. *sigh*

MM: (laughing hysterically) An "Elmo Something"!!!

I completely forgot what on earth it was that I saw and wanted to get for Maddy. I hate it when that happens!!! I still can't remember what it was. *sigh*

After supper, Maddy and Little One wanted yogurt. My mom was at the local Valu-Mart the other day and found these toddler yogurts made by Dairylan. L'il Ones Smooth & Creamy Yogurt comes in several flavours and the girls love them. Maddy had banana and Little One had what I thought were peaches. The girls didn't end up finishing their yogurts, so instead of wasting them, Maddy's Mommy and I decided to have the few spoonfuls of what our daughters left.

MM: Mmmm! The banana flavour is good!

Me: Really?

MM: Yeah. It's really good.

Me: Mmmmmmmmm! The peach is good too!

MM: (laughing) C, does the peach yogurt taste like apple?

Me: Actually, now that you mention it, it DOES!!! How funny is THAT?

MM: (laughing) Ummm...Maybe because the peach is actually apple?

Me: How do you know that?

MM: I just read the label! It says APPLE on your container!

HAHAHA! Wow. I don't recall ever being this ditsy. I wonder if Mommy brain gets worse after you've had more than one child? I wonder if the percentage of brain cells lost is directly proportionate to the number of children one has given birth to? :)

too funny, I consider that I have next to no brain cells left... and it gets worse when I am sleep deprived, which I have been for the past 6 years.
so, no positive comments here=))
haha, but as long as you are happy, who cares if you can't remember anything.

My children are all grown up and have left the nest and I still suffer from Mommy Brain. I agree with Jackie. I believe I have no brain cells left!

I found your blog from another blog, but cannot remember which!
