MommyBrain, glad I'm not alone!

Since having kids, I tend to be rather forgetful.  I do things that aren't logical  Occasionally, I can't remember the day of the week.  I search for keys that are in my pocket, sunglasses that are on my head, and ... and more often than I care to admit, I cannot finish my thoughts ...

But this time, I am not confessing to my own moment of MommyBrain.  This time I am calling out my dear friend Missy.  We've known each other since high school, and I love her like a sister.  Which totally gives me the right to share this{hilarious} blunder with you.  This story is just so funny, I cannot resist.

Missy is in the second trimester of her second pregnancy.  I've been there,. but I've never dealt with as much as she is currently dealing with in her life ... believe me when I say she has every reason to make this kind of  mistake.

This past weekend, Missy planned to have her mother-in-law visit. In the hopes of having some childcare for her son, so she and her husband could get things done around the house.  Being the wonderful daughter-in-law that she is, Missy even made the travel arrangements and booked an airline ticket online.

Her mother-in-law arrived at that airport yesterday - prepared to travel - and discovered that her airline ticket (the one Missy took care of for her) had been purchased not for February 25th but for MARCH 25th.

She was only off by thirty days!  And, of course, it had to happen to her mother-in-law!


Now that, folks, is MommyBrain at its finest!

*The airline was able to accommodate Missy's MIL on the flight, but I can still picture her reaction upon hearing that her ticket was for a month later ... and Missy's reaction to getting that news in a frantic phone call from her MIL at the airport!  It's not just me, right?  That's funny stuff!

Thanks for calling me out, D :) Actually, I have to admit, it's a pretty funny story. AND to top it off, my MIL called me right after I left Target. Right after I realized that I had bought 6 items...everything EXCEPT the one think I went for, milk. Seriously, I miss my brain!
