So, I’ve been stressed out recently. My behavior is seriously lacking. My eating and exercise habits require an intervention. Worst of all, my memory is gone!
It started with what I call the incident…I had taken my beautiful Dolly day dream to the doctor. When I returned to the car, it had started to snow and was freezing! I grabbed Dolly and put her in the car, then ran to cgrab baby Bubs and get her out of the snow. I threw the stroller in the back, leapt in and set off! I’d driven a short distance when my Doly said Mummy you’ve forgotten to strap me in! It’s important to be safe! I stopped immediately and dashed around to her side. She was right? Her belt was not fastened. What was I thinking? I fastened her in and she cried. How could you forget me? I begged forgiveness. She said she couldn’t forgive me… Not yet! This was serious! I called my husband, I sobbed down the phone, seeking something.. I’m not sure what! I /we were so lucky that the incident did not get any worse. I know anyone reading this with kids will understand how deeply sorry I was and also how incredibly lucky!
Then when I thought that I had got my act together. Incident number 2 happened! We went to Macdonalds for breakfast. Only the second time ever! We got there right at 11. Which is when they stop serving, so I offered to dash in and see if they could still serve us. I ran in, they could, so I ran back. Grabbed the baby and yelled yes if we’re quick to hubby! We managed our brekkie. It took around a half hour. When we walked out, I thought.. That’s odd! Before I could say anything, hubby said..is that your car that looks like it’s running? I was speechless! A rare occasion, I might add! Not only had I left the keys in the car! I’d left it running! I didn’t know whether to be totally relieved that no one had taken it! Or to be offended that no one wanted it? Of course I’m joking. I was so grateful that it was still there! I was in shock for the rest of the day!
Finally I get to incident number three! We recently went to England for a trip to see family. Things didn’t go as planned and we were very busy coping with bad news and unexpected circumstances. At some point on the trip, I have lost my own car key and the spare for hubby’s car. Plus the spare door key. So please anyone in Huddersfield reading this.. Plead check if you find a set of keys and return them. Hubby tells me his replacement is $300
And so, they say bad things come in 3’s.. Am I now in the clear? Can I blame it on the famous baby brain? Or just plain stress? Either way, I better get my brain into gear before someone gets hurt and I have around 2 weeks until I return to work! Watch out.. Here I come!
