Dear everyone, Right now I have the attention span of a fruit fly. Every day I lose my keys and I don't know where I put them, only to find they were in the same key pocket I put them in every day but just too deep in the pocket to have seen them the first time. I just had dinner and helped clear the table and put the mayo in the cupboard instead of the fridge. Every day I am clueless as to what day it is. I easily forget play dates, appointments, meetings, etc. even though I have 15-minute-prior-to reminders in my Blackberry. I meet people and 3 seconds later, I can't remember their name!
I am not excusing myself for any of this. Just because I have a 1+ year old doesn't make any of this right. But it most certainly is the explanation. I am raising a little human being. I am keeping her healthy, safe and entertained. So, you will lose me after 45 seconds on the phone. And I may forget to call you back even though I said I would. And I might miss a tea date or a play date. And although I know all the lyrics to "This Is a Song About Elmo" and have memorized anything written about, sung by or spoken by or to Elmo, I will probably forget your birthday!
I am in toddler land and it's a fun yet very demanding place to be. My little rugrat demands and deserves all my focus. Sorry in advance for all the oopses!
