For those of you new to pregnancy fun there is a lovely side effect I call "pregnancy brain." Some of my lucky friends say they've had no problems with this (Jessie for instance), but I've been less lucky. In my case, it means that I am a bit more forgetful than normal which leads to occasional humorous outcomes. I thought some might be worth sharing for posterity and a few laughs. It does make me a bit more careful about my work though as my memory is extremely key to my day job.
1) When pregnant with B I accidentally put the milk "away" by putting it in the tupperware cabinet where luckily Brent found it not long thereafter.
2) Recently, when clearing off the place mats to wash them. I apparently dumped them in the trash rather than in the laundry hamper around the corner. Brent was rather perplexed. I did this again with a dish towel a day or two later.
3) I randomly misplace things like my keys, bag, B's sippy cup, etc. Or more likely forget to bring them with us when we walk out the door. This often means two or three trips back into the house whenever we're trying to leave. B is very tolerate of this, I think Brent may be less so.
4) I've forgotten to add ingredients to several recipes or only remembered at the last moment. On Friday, I was pondering why I was only stirring the batter for cornbread a little if there was no leavener and then it occurred to me that there SHOULD be leavener, luckily there was still time to fix it.
(Ironically, this is a post I keep meaning to write and then forgetting...Here I got to item four and know there are tons more and discovered I can't remember any more incidences. I'll share some humorous ones as they happen as I'm sure they will.)
