How to Get Your Brain Cells Back
I’m a mom. My kids are all grown up now, but I’ve noticed that since they day they were born, I began losing brain cells. I lost a few after the birth of my first child and then even more with the second. Then middle-age set in, and now I have what they call senior moments. The thing is, I don’t think you have to be a senior to have a moment.
As an example, I will admit to doing the following dumb things in my youth:
-Building a fire in the fireplace on a cold winter’s day….flu closed.
-Calling all the moms at school to remind them that today was an early pick up day…they all picked up early…..except me….I forgot.
-packing the diaper bag with extra diapers, wipes, toys, bottles, formula, food, and a change of clothes. Got in the car. Forgot the baby.
-Stuffed the stuffed peppers so tightly that when we stuck a fork in them to partake, they exploded.
And here some of the dumb things I’ve done as senior. I don’t know about you, but I think the dumb things I did in my youth are dumber.
-push the elevator button over and over again when the elevator doesn’t come.
-pick up a piece of lint that the vacuum won’t pick up, throw it in front of the vacuum and go over and over it until it gets sucked up.
-Read billboard and store signs out loud in the car even though everyone else in the car can read.
-take a sweater with me so I won’t be cold in the restaurant and then leave it in the car so the car won’t be cold.
Empty Pill boxes are very useful, don’t you think?
-remembering to put my pill box in my purse but forgetting to fill it with pills.
I guess in retrospect, they’re all dumb things. I’m just dumb enough to admit to them. Hey, I have a dumb question: can I ever get those lost brain cells back?
Let’s chat. Have you lost brain cells? Have you found any? Please tell me all about it in the comments section below.
