Have you ever had one of those situations when your brain just no longer works right, and you blame it on the fact that you’ve had all of these kids? Well, as far as I can tell- this is a true phenomenon- this “Mom-nesia” thing…. I don’t know if it has to do with hormones, with brain-wiring going all crazy once you’ve become responsible for another junior-sized human being, or just the mere fact that perhaps you’ve taken on more than your mind and body can handle- but there is something about Mommy-hood that leads to a bizarre forgetfulness. So it is in that spirit that I share with you today- My 5 Best Mom-nesia Stories!
1.The Pre-School Valentine’s Party That I Planned…. but Then Didn’t Attend
Somehow I decided to take on co-planning the big Valentine’s Bash for my kids pre-school one year…. we booked a party location, hired a magician and a DJ and ordered food for the attendees, balloons for decoration and party favors…. it was an event that took weeks to plan and many hours of time, that I didn’t even have to give. But even with all of that time spent planning, I completely forgot to list the event in my own personal calendar…. so when my parents called one weekend to try to plan a get together for the kids and Steve and I at their house in FL- I went ahead and booked airline tickets for all of us for that very weekend! I had to explain this to my co-chairman, who must have thought I lost my mind….. and I had to miss the event that I spent so much time and effort in planning!
