Lost some nouns today.

I was trying to yell at Sam for eating a chocolate chip cookie whilst playing Zoo Tycoon on the computer. I had just taken the cookies out of the oven. And he was holding the hot cookie in a dish towel.

But I couldn't remember the words, "dish towel".

So I said, "Hey! You know you are not supposed to eat by the computer! What is THAT you have the cookie on! That is my good- THAT! Why did you take THAT to- The cloth thing! The- THING with the COOKIE ON IT! You know better than that! You get a- a- NAPKIN, not a- THAT THING!"

I used to call that preggo brain until I realized I could no longer use it 6 months after the baby's birth. Now I call it CRS: Can't Remember Shite

I know this all too well, and it's getting worse the second time around.

How do you manage having had three? It's like a lobotomy.

I once got so mad at my boys I couldnt even say their names right, I called Derek, Daryl.

He was less then amused hah.

I don't have kids and this happens to me, too. It's like you're in the middle of a conversation, and suddenly, whole parts of the vocabulary hide behind a tree or something.

And, on a similar note to Jess' comment, when my dad would get mad at me, he'd say all the other kids' names before mine. I'm the youngest, so he'd be bellowing "Don-Squir-Tard-Tim-KATHLEEN!"
Very amusing as I could be gone by the time he got to my name.

Hubs is always making fun of me for calling things "thing". "Ya know, the thing!"

Yup, here too. I call Brennen Hunter, and the reverse. I called one of them the dogs name once...he just looked at me like I was insane and we both cracked up.
My parents still do it. There are 3 of us, and I'm always Anna or Beth...never Dawn until the very end...like Bucky's dad :-)

I do the 'thing' thing too. 'you know, the one thing'.
Aren't blogs great! You realize your not alone.
