The other day my son was reminding me how I forgot to give him lunch money (of course I forgot, not him). My husband being the funny guy that he is, told him to get use to it. You know being forgotten or forgetting things. Now I’m the first to admit I do this often and that is really where it came from, it was all in fun and I laughed, and told my son he should rely on his own memory.
However I also made the comment that you do tend to forget things when you are taking care of 5 people. Let’s admit it I pretty much do take care of everyone including myself. Yes they take care of themselves, in fact my husband is rather self sufficient and though it is great to have someone doing things for you my husband has all the capabilities to do them as well.
What really cracked me up was my six your old daughter piping up. She said YES! When mommy has so many things to take care of and so many people to do things for sometimes things just slip out of her brain and she forgets! It is really hard for her to remember it all!
A girl after my own heart it made me laugh and is owe so true! I can’t tell you how many times I will call my husband and say do you want something from here or there. I will get there and totally blank on what he told me. This is usually because as he is giving me his answer my brain has already moved on to the next thing at hand. I liken it to what I think speed would make me feel like (if I knew), I feel that my brain is always going a mile a minute and I’m one step behind. I never truly feel relaxed, it just seems like there is always something that needs to be done, a kid to be raised, a punishment to dole out, a practice to run to, a game to watch, groceries to buy, dinner to make, house to clean, etc. You pretty much get the drift.
However I digress, the purpose of this post is Score one for the ladies! Thanks Honey for having my back!
