Two Weeks

Is the amount of time it took for me to notice that I had not purchased shampoo and conditioner but had in fact purchased two different types of shampoo. Sigh. What else have I done that has been scatterbrained and outrageous...let's see. I can't count how many times I've caught myself trying to put dirty dishes or flatware in the pantry. I backed into my mom's car when I was leaving for work while she was babysitting The Barracuda. I often have to make a trip back in to the house to retrieve my phone or keys. Thank God I haven't left The Barracuda in house or car. I feel like I'm going off of the deep end.

I love this new baby so so much, but OMG have I become DUMB. I was so smart the first time around. Really and truly sharp. People even remarked, "Wow, Allison is still so sharp even though she's pregnant." Now my brain is completely atrophied. I actually imagine that all of the ridges (I think they're called sulcci? Sulchi? Whatevs) have completely smoothed out. This new kid is making me stupid. One of the intensivists (a female, mind you) at work assures me that this will all be resolved once the fetus has left the womb. I'm not so sure. I feel like I'm going to be stuck this way permanently. I'll let you know how it turns out sometime around October 5th.
