There is something about being pregnant that makes women completely absent minded and air-headed. Some may disagree, but it’s a cold hard fact. Forgetful, clumsy, ditzy.. all lumped into one big gassy irritable mess.
I’ve been known to be driving and go the wrong direction home, to forget what i’m talking about mid sentence, to suddenly lose all common sense- and it’s annoying to say the least.
I call it “Preggo Brain” and unless you’ve been pregnant, you probably wouldn’t believe that it exists- but it does, and it’s dangerous.
Someone told me once that when women get pregnant, they end up only using half of their brain.. and while that’s horribly sexist (as a man said it to me) and untrue since we technically only use 10% of our brain anyways (according to scientists).. it fits the situation.
I’ve never felt more scatterbrained, confused and dumb in my life. I’m glad i’ve never made new friends while pregnant, they’d think I was one sandwich short of a picnic.
Today is prime example. Thomas and I went out to lunch with some friends of ours (who are married, and wifey is about 6 months preggo herself). I specifically did not stuff myself to the absolute extreme so I could have leftovers.
I proudly fill my to-go box to the brim with BBQ, corn biscuits, mashed potatoes, french fries, the works.. only to LEAVE IT ON THE TABLE.
Jenny does not leave food behind. I am a food enthusiast, a fat kid in hiding..
Leave it to a preggo to STILL be pissed about forgetting the leftovers hours after the fact.
I want my corn biscuits.
@anninabyrne He mentioned something about penis trampolines. I don't even know.
My 10 yo didn't know that Dick is short for Richard so he's spent the past 10 yrs thinking Dick's Sporting Goods is a store for penis sports
8yo told me that Oct 31st is "national knock-knock joke day"- which means Halloween will henceforth be known as "The Most Annoying Day Ever"
@SassyPsychDoc "It seemed like a good idea at the time"
@SassyPsychDoc I fact-checked him myself. Someone was seriously sleeping on the job that day
Thought my 8yo was lying when he said that a male woodchuck is a he-chuck & a female is a she-chuck.Nope. If I have to know that, so do you!
Sometimes advice from our kids is EXACTLY what we need to hear. Been a rough few months & what my 8yo said hit home holdinholden.com/2017/10/winn…
10yo: What is calculus? Me: It's you + me = us Husband: get out. #oldpeoplejokes
