Um.........

OK.....I have officially replaced my adult vocabulary for a 3 year old vocabulary. Even as I write this I sit for several minutes in the middle of each sentence to try to find my words. I seem to have lost any capability of having an adult conversation with words bigger than 5 letters. It took me 4 minutes to think of the word capability. How sad is that? I was trying to write a comment on my friends Alias blog the other day and somewhere in my head I had a really intelligent response but I had No words to put it in. I takes me so long to put words to my thoughts that by the time I actually do I have a 3 year olds whining for my attention or a newborn that wants to nurse. I eventually gave up because my brain started to hurt! :) My children turned my brain into mush! AGHHHHHH! :) Does anyone else get this? Will I ever get my intellagence back?

Mush for brains! Mush for brainds! Sara Fu's got mush for brains!
Maybe some day I'll have mush for brains. Oh wait..I already do and I don't have a three year old. DOH! Things are looking good for me :)

I feel like my brain is mush after interacting with my students all day. I swear I am losing brain cells by the minute. I have had a noticeable loss of memory since I started this job and it has gotten worse (if that is possible) since I have been pregnant. Man, if it gets worse after kids I should just warn everyone that I will be saying DDDDDDDDDDuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhh! and nothing more intelligent than that starting in August! :) By the way, I don't think you sound unintelligent Sara!

Could you possibly be talking about Let's Talk??? YAHOO! The blog is in full swing my dear and I can't wait for the new eppies! New info, new stuff to dissect and digest! Round up the fam Sara, the last few eps are going to be killer.

As for vocab- I know I am suppose to encourage proper English and articulation, but I think "baby brain" is normal. I spent one day with my little SpyBaby and I've been rambling on about doggies and kitties for days!

I think that you are a great conversationalist. You always seem to have something to talk about. I have the same problem that you are talking about though. I think lack of rest can cause your brain to not function at full capacity. One day you will catch up on rest and things will get better! Remember, Asher is ONLY 3 mos. old!!!You do ALOT for having a 3 mos. old baby, not to mention a 3 year old and work part-time.

Sara, I don't have my own SpyBaby, but my best friend has a 1 year old daughter named...Sydney! She's our little Spybaby. My friend got me addicted to Alias while she was preggo with Syd.

Sarafu said...

LOL! When I was prego with my first son if we had had a girl we were going to name her Sydney. Apparently I am not destined to have girls. We were considering naming Asher Vaughn because we thought the name sounded very classy but we figured people would think we were Alias freaks because then we would have a Jack and a Vaughn...... I still think its a cool name :)

Kiki said...

Oh, I am using Vaughn for sure, but as a girls name. Lila Vaughn. It's a done deal, I don't care what the dad wants. HAHAHA!

You will have moments of clarity, and alas, moments of mush! Unfortunately the mush stage lasts longer than the clarity stage, but trust me it will get easier by the time they get in kindergarten. They are teaching them so much these days that you won't have to worry about your mushbrain. Your child will be able to balance your checkbook. LOL.

leviathen said...

wouldn't that be great!! Gone are the days of "Son.... go mow the lawn" or " Do the dishes!"

now it's "son, could you please balance my checkbook and while your at it give me your projections for the next three years of growth on my 401K? Then you can go play."

woohoo!
