My Memory

Al is always boggled by my lack of short term memory. I'll admit...it is awful.
Our convo yesterday morning:

Al: I can't find my insert: whatever it was that was missing (See, I've forgotten already what it was!).
Me: You'll need to look for it. And not the kind of looking you did when you lost your glasses. I mean ACTUALLY LOOK FOR IT.
Al (in that 'tween' voice): Mom, you freak me out. Why is it you remember the things I wish you would forget? But I can tell you something, and 5 minutes later you don't remember it?

Sorry, Al. It's kinda like that "eyes in the back of my head" thing.

Al has many things to learn about mom: MOMnipotent! MOMnipresent! MOMniscient! (in any order you prefer).

I am the same exact way. I can remember the most random things forever, but can't remember things that happened 5 minutes ago that might actually have been important (can't remember what it was)

Funny, he thinks a lot older than just a tween.

Oh, my! I shouldn't have made that comment. Now your blog hates me. I "x-ed" out of your blog, and your music still played!!!

Seriously, I only had google open. It won't stop.

I think Al is going to grow up to be just like my hubby...and trust me, there are worse things! We play the "where is my..." game almost daily.
