Too ridiculous to forget!

Seriously, sometimes I wish I could slap myself!

Friday I took the boys up to have dinner with my Dad. Einstein was home but was going to be working on a friend's car. So off we went.

While my Dad was making dinner Thomas Trouble was asking to go outside. So I took them for a walk around the block.

About three quarters of the way back to my Dad's I see someone I know from my sister's neighborhood. We say "hello" and gawk at each other's children and comment about how fast they are growing.

She looks at me and says, "Your little one's name is escaping me".

Internet, what I'm about to tell you has had me cringing every time I think about it!

Do you know what my response was to her statement?

It was blank.

As in a blank stare.

At her.

At Mr. Mean.

Totally blank.

And not for just like a second. It was blank long enough for me to respond "Wow, it's escaping me too."

And then blank for a few more seconds until it finally hit me.

"David! His name is David." I FINALLY said.

You guys, I never felt so small in my life!

I am not laughing hysterically at this post. No, not me!

(Furthur proof that children live off of their parent's brain cells!)

Oh my word....that's not good! I'm not sure I've ever gotten that bad. I did forget the name of my husband one time. Is that bad too? :-) This post seriously cracked me up!

That's hysterical, I can totally picture it. Don't feel bad at all! I can never tell my girls apart in public, on the spot situations and makes me feel kind of like that, too :)

Wow! So kind of you to share that with the rest of us. We feel so much better about our forgetful selves now.
Thank you!
