And just in case you're wondering, that's a spaghetti strainer, child's bowl (melted under the strainer), and two sippy cups.
My poor husband decided to make an oven-baked pizza the other night, and when he opened the perfectly preheated oven to put his pizza in, he found the above. I had forgotten to take the aformentioned dirty dishes OUT of the oven and put them IN the dishwasher. Guess I won't make that mistake again...or will I???
My friend, Katie, calls these moments of forgetfulness "momnesia", and I wholeheartedly agree. Some of my finer "momnesia" moments include:
- buckling my child into the carseat and driving to the park, not realizing the car seat was never fastened in with the car seatbelt.
- pouring Coke into my son's sippy cup, instead of the apple juice right next to it (imagine HIS delight!)
- pulling out of my driveway with a very large drink on top of my car (we all know how that one ends)
- putting my son into a pull-up diaper thinking it was a swimmy diaper, and watching it grow and swell, wondering all the while why on EARTH it would be doing that?
What are your momnesia moments???
