I am know that with each pregnancy I have lost braincells...my friend calls the disease "placenta brain".
Today I had to go to Sears to get a part for the fridge. It was raining like crazy so I grabbed the stroller, put the baby in and we ran inside. Then I decided to walk around the mall ( it was a lot better than being out in the cold rain). Well, an hour and a half later I go out and there is my van, sitting in the pouring rain with the back hatch open! DUHHHHH! I am an idiot.
I might be a little less hard on myself if this was an isolated incident, but unfortunately it isn't.
I cant even count how many times I have locked my keys in the car in the past 9 months. I finally got a hide-a-key but left it at home on the counter... oops. During dinner one night, instead of putting a plop of sour cream on my chili, I plopped a bunch of chili IN the container of sour cream. One day I drove away from the Wendy's drive up without the food, but after I had paid. And last week, I went to the grocery store TWICE without any money.... and didn't realize it until i had been there for an hour and had 80 dollars worth of groceries already bagged.
So if you have any idea on how to regrow brain cells I would much appreciate it. Especially since I think that more and more of them are dying each day....
