Thoughts on my becoming an Airhead...
Before I was pregnant I hardly ever lost things...Since becoming pregnant I have lost both my keys and my favorite jacket. (Keys have since been found, jacket is still MIA) I also manage to leave my purse behind almost everywhere we go. Scary, right?
Before I was pregnant I had a pretty good grip on my emotions and showed good restraint especially when talking about getting a dog. Drew and I had decided to wait to get a dog until our kids could enjoy it. Well once I got pregnant I almost bought a dog. And I'm not exaggerating at ALL! The SPCA showed up at Kroger when I was grocery shopping with about 50 dogs and a whole truck full of kittens. I literally cried as I paced up and down the aisles of Kroger on the phone with Drew telling him that this one dog needed me. I took out enough cash at the ATM to buy him and everything. It was a very close call. Thankfully my sweet husband (who was at work while trying to talk me very sweetly out of getting a dog) told me to come on home and we would talk about it there. He convinced me the dog would still be there if I wanted to go back and get it. Thankfully I got a grip and did not buy the dog.
I've always been bad with directions, but since becoming pregnant it has gotten worse. I went to visit my father in law at the wrong hospital after his hip surgery even though I knew exactly where I was supposed to be going.
I often forget where I'm going or what I'm supposed to be doing, but it is all worth it. My thoughts are now focused on the little man in my belly and I wouldn't change it for the world.
Now please share your best pregnancy brain moments so I don't feel like such an airhead...
