Every once in a while I’ll be going through the motions of every day life and do something so absurd I have to stop myself in my tracks. Mind you, this didn’t used to happen to me. I used to be running on all cylinders at all times, like a well-oiled machine. And then I had kids. And all of a sudden my brain was totally scrambled. And now if I let myself go on autopilot as I’m doing my daily tasks, really weird things sometimes happen. I’m starting to write them down just for giggles, so here are a few of my greatest hits for your entertainment.
- Leaving the gym this morning, I stepped off of the stair climber machine and walked away. And as I was walking away I took out my car keys, pointed them at the machine, and pushed the clicker like I was trying to lock my car.
- I can no longer eat my own breakfast while I’m feeding Maggie her solids, after an unfortunate incident wherein I got mixed up and ate a spoonful of her baby oatmeal (mixed with breastmilk).
- I once lost my cell phone for an entire afternoon. It was in the fridge.
- One day Maggie was crying and I walked right up to Ryan and tried to put her pacifier in his mouth.
Mostly I can laugh it off, but I maintain the fact that those beautiful babes of mine broke my brain. And I don’t think it’s just me, right?! Any moms out there who experience something similar? I would love to know the weird stuff you’ve done — who’s got a doozy? xoxo
