When I was pregnant with Merryn, I developed a severe case of "pregnancy brain." One time, I went to the grocery store and filled up my cart, only to realize that I had forgotten my purse and had no form of payment on me. Another time, I made tuna and noodle casserole and I forgot to add the tuna (minor detail) and I didn't even realize it until I was munching on the leftovers the next day. Oh and perhaps the biggest pregnancy brain episode was when I arranged childcare, showered, dressed and arrived at a dentist appointment only to be told that I had no appointment! I had imagined it! They literally laughed me out of the office.
What an immense relief to put pregnancy and pregnancy brain behind me...until we showed up at the pediatric therapy center this morning for our 10:15am speech therapy appointment only to be told that the speech & language pathologist was on vacation. Vacation?! But I had it on my calendar! The receptionist searched and searched and could find no record of us having an appointment. Looks like my pregnancy brain has morphed into "momnesia." Oh and it gets worse...
Josie's beloved physical therapist, Katie, had a cancellation and benevolently offered to do treadmill therapy with us today so we don't have to come back tomorrow. Great!
Josie walked on the treadmill, practiced walking behind a toy shopping cart, and even practiced reaching, squatting, and bending. My little speech therapy mishap turned into a productive appointment, indeed.
And while the initial mistake was a bit embarrassing, I left feeling good about how things turned out...until I got home, uploaded my photos, and saw this picture:
Yes, folks - in addition to making up an imaginary speech therapy appointment, I am also responsible for a serious wardrobe malfunction; I dressed Josie in her sister's dress! And I didn't even notice until I saw the pictures of Josie in this miniskirt so short that it would make Madonna blush!
It's not like they're all that similar in size. Just to clarify, Merryn wears a size 12M. Josie wears a size 24M.
How does this happen?!
I think I need a LONG vacation!
