I've done some pretty stupid things in my life, the majority being just "blonde moments." But I also was a decently smart cookie in my school years. Lately, I seem to be having more of those infamous blonde moments, and I'm choosing to blame my kids. I really do surprise myself sometimes with my level of stupidness and what better way to celebrate it than to share with all of you!
While coming up on a red light, that only turns red if someone pushes the button at the cross-walk, I see cars stopped and a black dog walking across the road. My thought, "What in the world?!? The dog pushed the button and, to top it off, is actually walking in the cross-walk?!?" No, dummy. The dog is on a very long leash and the owner is about 12 feet behind it.
I'm always filling glasses of water when I have another one sitting half full in the living room.
I returned the Bill Nye The Science Guy: Outer Space DVD to the library before dropping Cade off at school. When I get home, I start dusting around the TV where I find the Bill Nye The Science Guy: Outer Space DVD. I returned the case.
During my morning routine one day, I got my cup of coffee and took my vitamin. After helping Cade get his breakfast, putting away a few dishes, washing a couple bottles and briefly reading the headlines in the paper, I started eating a banana and then.....I took my vitamin. Just 15 or so minutes after taking it the first time. I felt really healthy that day.
Brynlee still wakes up once a night (around 2:00 or so) to eat. During the time that she was sick, she woke up quite a bit more than just once. I still tried to only feed her once though around her regular time. Except for the night that exhaustion got the best of me and I fell asleep shortly after 9:00. Brynlee woke up and I stumbled out of bed, eyes still closed, grabbed the bottle and went in to feed her. I never really opened my eyes until I came back into my room to see that it was 9:24. Loser!
Lunchtime can get crazy around here. I have four people to feed and some days that equals four different meals. One crazy day in particular, I got a bottle warming for Brynlee. A few minutes later I take it out and put it off to the side. Meanwhile, I'm doing a few dishes, throwing a few pieces of food to the 1-year-old I watch, fixing plates for Cade and I and trying to soothe Brynlee's whines for her food. As I'm putting things back in the fridge and getting other things out, I grab a bottle for Brynlee to warm up. This would have been a huge failure but luckily I noticed the already warmed bottle as I was starting to warm to new one.
So, that's my life. You may laugh (at least I hope you did a little, otherwise what was the point of this post?) but while you get pleasure out of my stupidity, remember that this my brain people. I have no control and it's starting to worry me!
I'm glad I saw this now because it very well could have been the next thing to add to my list!
