Last Call for BD Moments

Okay - final call for "Brain Dead Moments!" (See previous post.)

Author, Debra Woods, will choose a winner from your shining moments this weekend. Winner will receive a copy of Debra's book, It's Okay to Take a Nap (and Other Reassuring Truths for Mothers Everywhere) courtesy of Debra.

If you'd still like to be in the running, just post your best sleep-deprivation story as a comment under my "Brain Dead" post.

Thanks to those of you who shared! It was great fun for me to laugh with you!

A scary theme surfaced. Basically - brain dead negligence manifests itself most prominently when dealing with cars and car seats. So new Moms - be vigilant when you climb behind the wheel. Keep a wary eye. Children have been known to fly from car seats, be left in garages or mysteriously disappear!

As for an update on the boys. Wednesday Spencer weighed 9 lbs 15 oz. Gordon 10 lbs 1 oz. They are sleeping more soundly through the night. And cross your fingers... this is day THREE Spencer has been off oxygen. One more night and I think we may be able to toss "Oxy" out the window for good! Freedom!


  1. I just realized that my biggest brain dead moment was probably when I accidently shipped my new iphone to a friend. The following is my blog entry:

    In Japanese, atama pimon literally translates to pepper head. Peppers are hollow - so a pepper head is really an airhead and lately that's me.
    Being pregnant and chasing after other kids, I find myself tired quite a lot and often lack motivation to do anything above the normal "has to be done" stuff. So I finally decided one day - I WAS going to be more productive and get a few things sorted through, mailed out, etc. In order to do this, I had to follow the kids around w/my stuff - front yard, back yard, etc. - no big deal. Well, that night as I was going to sleep, I mentioned to Mike that I wasn't sure where I had left my phone but really wasn't too worried - I figured I'd call it in the morning and find it. Well, I called and called and nothing. So I searched and still NOTHING! Mike did the same thing the next day and we still couldn't locate that darn phone. I figured it would eventually turn up but when it had been almost a week w/no luck - I started to think Brett may have thrown it in the trash and it was long gone in a dump somewhere. Quite depressing, since this would be the 3rd phone I've gone through since last July. I decided if it wasn't found by the next day -I would just have to face the music and go get a new phone.
    Funny thing - that very night after we got home from soccer practice, there was a message on the phone from my friend Ann. I had successfully gotten a birthday package off to her and she called to thank me and to let me know there was AN I-PHONE IN HER PACKAGE! I know, I am quite generous with birthdays. Who does that??? Who sticks their phone in a package and sends it across the country? I have to admit, even though it is embarrassing - and really quite funny - I was just relieved to know it was somewhere and I wasn't losing my mind - well, maybe I am, but anyway... Definitely an atama pimon moment (can I blame it on pregnancy, advancing age, or just mommy madness?). Ann was kind enough to send the phone back and it is nice to feel a bit more connected to the world once again. I still can't believe I sent my phone off - not something I'll forget soon - but it definitely gave us all a good laugh!

  2. I am excited to hear about Spencer! I hope it sticks. I'll call you tomorrow!
