Any of you suffer from pregnancy brain? What is it about being pregnant that all of a sudden makes you forgetful, loopy, or just plain stupid?? I find myself doing things that I would never normally do. I'm pretty together most of the time. I am good about making lists, keeping our calendar current, remembering birthdays and anniversaries, and remembering to feed our daughter. Now, not so much.
This morning Julianne had Little Gym so I got out the door (almost on time) and we had a good time. I rushed when leaving Little Gym to get to the splash pad by 10. I joined a new mom's group and our second outing with them was to be the splash pad. I wrote it in my datebook for 10a.m. We got there and no one was there. The splash pad was there but the water wasn't turned on. I looked to see what time it opened - 10. Hmm??? I didn't know what to do so I thought well, maybe people are just late so we hung around for a bit and I let Julianne play in the park that was there. We waited until about 10:20 and still no one had arrived. I finally gave up and left. I came home to double check the e-mail reminder I got yesterday and learned it was at 10:30. Oh well, maybe next time.
Yesterday we had a storm here - thunder, lightning, wind and rain. Julianne was napping and I was in the office. I didn't have the TV on although I did have music playing (but not very loud). This morning on Facebook one of my neighbors posted something about the tornado warning yesterday and the sirens being loud and I was like "huh?". Apparently, I was so zoned out that I didn't hear the extremely loud sirens warning me to go into my basement. All I can say is thank God there was no tornado! I looked out the window at one point and thought "wow, that is sideways rain" because the wind was blowing so hard. I guess that should have been my clue to turn the TV on. In my defense though, a tornado is not a common occurrence here.
One night last week I realized at about 11p.m. that I had put Julianne to bed without feeding her dinner. NICE. She did have a late snack but I didn't even offer her dinner. She hasn't been eating much dinner lately so it wasn't too big of a deal but I felt really bad. Please don't call CPS...really, I'm a good mom 99% of the time! Who would've thought that I would need to put "feed Julianne" on my list of things to do!
I haven't taken a picture of Julianne in about 3 weeks. I just keep forgetting. I plugged my camera in the other day to download whatever was on it, and there was nothing. That has literally never happened. I am usually obsessed with taking pictures. What is going on? What causes this? Does this tiny life growing inside of me kill brain cells or something? I don't understand this phenomenon but I truly believe that it exists.
Thank goodness my parents arrive on Tuesday. They can pick up the slack whenever I forget to do something....and remind me to take pictures!
