The Perils of Being a Stay at Home Mother

First, my IQ has dropped about 100 points.

I bought Henry the Little Dipper spoons to use, and I couldn't figure out the weird design. He wasn't crazy about them, so I just gave them to him to hold while he was eating. He turned them right side up and started using them properly. Well, at least my nine month old is smarter than me.

He was having trouble crawling for a few minutes this morning. He was slipping onto his belly. I was just thinking that maybe I should call the Ped because I thought he might be having a seizure or something. Helloooo, he has cotton pants and socks on for the first time in weeks, can't get much traction on the wood floor with those!

I feel like my arches are collapsing from being barefoot or in flip flops all of the time. Need to buy some proper footwear.

Anyway, that has been my day.

There is a reason I went back to work....my brain had turned to mush on Maternity Leave. However, back to the grind now for 5 months and I still have periodic episodes of what I like to call "mommy brain." :) Hang in there!

Hi Vanessa- I haven't read your blog in a while (I forgot the web address and was able to figure it out after a few tries). I checked it out today and loved it. It was great to read the update. Henry is so cute!!! I loved seeing the photos too. Sounds like you are an awesome mommy! Let's have a playdate soon. xo Lynn
