If I Only Had a Brain…

You remember that post about Momnesia?

(I’ll make it easy for you…https://mrsgoresdiary.wordpress.com/2011/04/16/the-momnesiac-chronicles/)

Well, since bringing baby #3 home, my condition has reached new and uncharted heights and I cannot be counted on to successfully do much of anything but feed a baby every three hours and hug my oldest kids everytime they walk by.

For instance, twenty minutes before a huge party I was hosting began, my sister-in-law found me organizing the stationery in my drawer. She snapped me out of my stupidity and I was able to run and fix my hair before the guests arrived to find me in the rumpled french braids I slept in the night before.

Likewise, I keep making the long trek into the kitchen to add an item to my grocery list, but by the time I get there, I have completely forgotten what it might even possibly be…

Or I absentmindedly eat the kids breakfast as I am walking into the next room to deliver it to them…

Or I respond to the simple question of “What’s your baby’s name?” with a long, embarrassing “Uhhhhh…” before triumphantly saying “Bestsie! Her name is Betsie.” (and this is not when I am not calling her ‘Abigail’, ‘Rebekah’, or my personal favorite, ‘Rebetsie’.)…

Or I call my husband and after our ‘hellos’ I ask what he needed – after a long pause, I say “Oh…did I call you?”…

OR…

I come to write a blog post and I am met with the same results over and over again: 1. I start a new post but get sleepy and confused about two paragraphs in, or 2. I work on an old post, but by the time I reread it to get back in the right frame of mind, I have fallen asleep, even though my little lamp is shining in my face and I am sitting Indian-style on my bed.

Which would explain why I have 40 incomplete drafts sitting in my blog’s hidden lair.

All that to say this…I know from experience that the old Mrs. Gore will soon and very soon make a temporary recovery. I say “temporary” because I also know from experience that with said recovery comes the inevitable and inexplicable longing to start this whole process over again and have another baby.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So what I’m saying is, I have lost my mind but for good cause (Betsie is more than worth the inconvenience), and I have 4o posts to share with you after my brain comes back to me. In the meantime, I only have the mind capacity to wish you a wonderful day, and before I fall asleep, I just want you to thank each and every one of you for…

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz (don’t talk to me, I’m sleeping).
