I gave a piece of my brain to Gideon, people.

I didn't post yesterday. Not because I was too busy. But because I forgot.

There were many things I expected to get in my way this month. I expected holiday busyness to overwhelm me. Sewing projects to call me. Tiredness to plague me. Gideon to demand my attention. Silas to distract me. But I never assumed I would just forget to post.

Memory has never been my strong point, folks. And let me tell you, I have recently come to believe that when you have a baby you give him or her part of your brain. My cute, smiling little boy, Gideon, stole a part of my brain that I will never get back.

I don't begrudge him this. It's a nice little gift to give to my son. But still. I'm frustrated at my inability to remember things. Knowing I have a problem gives me this eerie feeling that I'm constantly forgetting something. 

There is a very long list of things I need to get done before we go out of town for Thanksgiving next week. There are emails and texts and facebook messages I need to respond to. There's that new diaper bag I'm making that I would like to finish. I'm trying to get all of my instruments all tuned up. There are a bunch of snacks I want to make for our car trip. AND I CAN'T REMEMBER TO DO ANY OF THEM.

So. There is going to be some serious list-making going on this evening, people. Gideon had better behave himself. Brain thief.


  1. I read about this in Psychology! In a way, you actually DID give Gideon a piece of your brain! When you're pregnant some part of your brain gets bigger and some part gets smaller. You will get it back though, I promise you. All the experts say so. ; )

  2. You know Thanksgiving isn't next week, right?

  3. That Picture of Gideon is too cute!

  4. This is an awesome post. Thanks so much for the chuckle!!


Muse with me. Please?
