Oh, Mommy Brain...How I Love Thee!

Scene: Our farm. Walking towards the barn with my old roomies from when I lived in Toronto, their kids, Hubby, Little One. On our way to show the kids the tractors and the bull.

Dani: (whispering) C, do you have any "pee oh pee cee oh ar en?"

Me: (extremely confused) HUH!? I've never heard of that before. I have no idea if we have that on the Island or not.

Dani: (laughing hysterically) C! P-O-P-C-O-R-N!!! I just didn't want to say it out loud in case you didn't have any. I didn't want the kids to hear.

Me: Ohhhhhh! Now I get it! (laughing)

Dani: (still laughing) C! Some English teacher you are!!!

Facebook thread with a few of my gal pals.

SuperAmazingMommy: Ok, here's the scoop. We HAVE to set a date for pie!!!! Sunday July 11th? Or does someone have a better suggestion?

E: Sunday is fine with me!

Me: Sounds perfect. I think I work that day until 11AM though. Sometime after that okay? :) Thanks!

Maria: I don't know if I can or not... so many family birthdays that weekend.. Remember M & A's party is on the 10th!!!

Me: AHHH! Sorry, no can do! Thanks for reminding me, Maria!!! M's b-day on Sat AND I'm throwing a stag and doe for L and K on Sat (10th), and Sunday the 11th there's a baby shower for a friend in Wiki. Ahhhh...I almost forgot! Okay, so the 11th is not good for me after all. :(

Maria: You are so funny! How can you forget ALL of that!!!

Me: LOL! It's either Mommy Brain or I've got too much on my plate. Or both. Bahhh.

Phone conversation with a friend.

Maria: So, we need to talk about this cake.

Me: What cake?

Maria: The one you asked me to make for an upcoming event!

Me: Oh, my goodness! I forgot that I asked you to bake a cake for me! Thanks for reminding me!

Seriously, these days it seems that if my head weren't attached to me, I wouldn't know where it was. *sigh*

hahaha I have moments like this too. I am forever losing my best knife in the kitchen, or going from room to room to find something I'd just had in my hand moments before. It's very frustrating.

Thank you! Happy 4th to you guys! :)

:) Oh, thank goodness I'm not the only one then! :) The going from room to room to find something you just had in your hand moments before...sounds familiar! I do that all the time too! LOL! *sigh*
