my kids have stolen my brain

it's settled. having kids has made me dumb. i was a "straight A" student in high school. graduated with a 3.98 gpa.

and then i had kids.

this morning, at 8:15am, as jesse was leaving for work, i asked him to stop and pick something up from the grocery store on his way home. something really important that we had run out of. by lunchtime, when i was texting him to remind him to stop at the store, i could not, for the life of me, remember what it was i had asked him to get.

it's a sad, sad thing to lose your mind.

i had to write this one down

jacob's prayer at lunch today:

"dear jesus. thank you for this food. thank you for our toys and all the people outside. i pray for mommy and daddy so that they don't get lost. amen."
