The day before Thanksgiving while Bean was at daycare and Chris was at work, I was in my kitchen baking biscuits to use in my dad’s stuffing recipe. I put the biscuits in the oven and then sat down to make my grocery list because I had forgotten to buy a few things. When my list was finished, I grabbed my purse and my keys, threw on some shoes, and ran up to the grocery store. When I pulled into the parking lot, it was naturally packed since it was the day before Thanksgiving. And I thought to myself, “I don’t have time for this! I have biscuits in the oven!”
OH MY GOD! I HAVE BISCUITS IN THE OVEN!
I went flying back to my house, tires literally screeching, and dashed into my kitchen. Thankfully, we don’t live far from the grocery store, but still. PREGNANCY BRAIN FART #1
Then a couple days ago, I posted a new product review to my Blogher review page (don’t forget to enter to win a $100 gift card for HasbroToy.com AND a free Weebles gift pack, by the way…) and I completely forgot to tell anyone that the post was up. So for days it sat there with no traffic and no comments and I was like, “What the crap is going on here?” And then I realized. Duh. Nobody knew it was over there. PREGNANCY BRAIN FART #2.
Then yesterday I was teaching in one of my classes and there was this kid who never, ever pays attention and I saw him gazing off into space. So I called on him to answer a question. Because I’m the teacher that likes to call on the kids who aren’t paying attention.
“Jeffrey,” I said. “Can you answer the question?”
And then this polite little girl in the front row whispered to me, “Mrs. Brown? We don’t have anyone in this class named Jeffrey.”
And that’s when I realized that I had no clue what this kid’s name was. None. It’s like I went away for Thanksgiving and lost all memory of this one random kid. PREGNANCY BRAIN FART #3.
So today, I’m in the same exact class and we’re doing another class activity and that same kid is staring off into space again.
“Jeffrey?” I called.
And then kids started kind of giggling.
“JEFFREY!” I snapped.
“Uh, Mrs. Brown?” says the polite girl again. “We still don’t have anyone in this class named Jeffrey.”
