Boo! Look What I Can Do!

Freaky smart things my daughter has learned (without our help) right before Halloween. She can unscrew the lid on her very tightened sippy cup. Oooooh! (May I also mention it was FULL of apple juice and she was drenched and so was the floor) While I was making her cereal and toast for breakfast she brought me her little play toaster from her kitchen. Coincidence? I think not. And finally while we were visiting a friend she made her way down several carpeted stairs without us knowing about it. (Bad parents, we need a spanking!) We even had a board across the stairs which had a small hole which we covered up with our jackets. She moved the jackets, wiggled through the hole and crawled safely down the stairs. Scary! What's really scary? We haven't taught her to go down stairs. AHHHH!

Here are some of the brilliant things I've been doing lately. There have been times I've frantically been looking for my backpack (Baby Bag/Purse) only to find that I have it strapped to my back! We went grocery shopping and while Peter was buckling Miss A into her car seat I put returned the grocery cart. When we got home I realized I hadn't taken the groceries out of the cart! This just happened this morning, I was making our breakfast and I starting pouring my tea into a jar of jam instead of my cup! I don't know what you are all thinking but I think this proves a theory I have. That my daughter is actually an alien sent down to us from space to destroy my brain cells so she can take over the world. I'm kidding of course. I love the little monkey. But I think it's obvious she gets her brains from her father.

I poored milk into a jar of peanut butter yesterday! And I have a thing where I compulsively check the rear view mirror to make sure I remembered to put Sam in the car.

Ahem... are you sure that it is not a brand new monkey sucking down your brain cells? I get this quality of loopy when I am "in a family way." Just sayin'.

Funny. I know my brain is mushier too since having children. Not quite that mushy, but mushy. :)

And I love that scowl A has going on. Adorable!

Oh, my goodness! She actually looks like her dada in that pic! WHOA!
I have to agree with Bon's guess! I call it pregnancy brain! Although I have a friend...who actually did research and found that everytime you have a child you lose brain cells! It's a proven fact! AND all of us have gone thru it!

A looks like she's about to say " Hey, I'm readin' here!"
Too cute...
Brain farts abound for me too..
