sleep dep in action  

I couldn’t get through a coherent sentence yesterday to save my life. “It doesn’t matter if it’s hot or cold as long as it’s 70 degrees!” I said cheerfully. What I meant was it didn’t matter if it rained as long as it was 70 degrees. Or, shortly after that, discussing second-hand shops, “You can spend a lot of money with a hundred euro!” when I meant “A hundred euro goes a long way at a second-hand shop.” Then later I was carrying the diaper bag (have I taken a picture of that? I must. It’s magnificent.) and I’d thought I had both straps over my shoulder, except I couldn’t see one. So I started looking for it. On my shoulder. Over my arm. Across the top of the bag. Eventually I found it dangling from the far side of the bag. You know. The side upon which it was attached, from whence I might expect to have collected it.

Mom, watching me try to find the strap, got the giggles. ;) And they all laughed at me for my incoherent comments, not that I could blame them… :)

Ooh, also, while Ted’s parents were here, we saw a cow chasing a rabbit. How weird is that? :)

Baby brain *nods* It's a well-known fact that having a baby turns your brain to mush for a while. Then, on top of that, your body starts doing things without you noticing. Like standing somewhere, talking to another adult, no babies/children in sight, you suddenly realise that you are gently rocking and twisting from side to side then forward and back. It's even funnier if the other person is also a mum, because then she does it as well *grin*

My parents made up a sniglet for this particular phenomenon, "swaybee" :P

Don't worry, it all gets better once you get caught up on your sleep again.


Or, so they tell me. :-b

I'm hoping it gets better once they've finally left home.

You have a husband.

So, no.

Don't count on it :P Words of wisdom from my late maternal grandfather: "Once you become a parent, there are two things you are never again guaranteed - finishing a meal by yourself, and getting a full night's sleep."

*hugs and prods at your brain a bit*

*LOL* I completely lost my ability to carry on a coherent conversation. I'd vocalize part of a thought, drift off and stare into space for a moment, then completely change subject, blithely unaware of what I was doing. Random comments out of the blue were amusing, too; I would be discussing something, and then would ask about movies and have no idea why I did that.

Mombrain is frustrating, but can be amusing. :)

Bet you can't use that first sentence in a story, and make it make sense...


Never seen a cow chase rabbits, but my sister's cat once tried to chase off a horse...
(That cat was small. So small that most thought she was a kitten.. )
