I do have more thoughts on the issues we’ve been discussing on the blog here. Or rather, I had thoughts, and then they are gone–because zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon… 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1–Blast Off!
Seriously. I’ve been taking care of a two-year-old since Friday and I have found a couple of things. First off, deep thoughts and two-year-olds don’t generally go together. Secondly, I’m exhausted. And it’s not my child, and there’s only one of her. And one of me. You’d think we’d be even. But she (the two-year-old) consistently has more energy than me.
To all the moms out there, my sincere respect. A lot of respect. To those who not only have kids but also blog coherently, using full sentences and in full awareness of the news, what is going on AND what they think of it…I don’t know how you do it, I truly don’t.
Tanya can’t let “mommy-brain” go unmentioned here: It’s a condition that causes you to put milk in the pantry and cereal in the fridge. It also slashes the breadth of your vocabulary by about 60%. (That last symptom, however, may have something to do with all the peepee-poopoo-booboo banter.) Mommy-brain (aka baby-brain) starts sometime during your first pregnancy and, as of yet, no one has been able to tell me when I get my old brain back. In combination with a toddler’s constant interruptions, train of thought is a thing of the past.by
