At 6 weeks, the extra B vitamins Jen is on seem to be holding off nausea, but we seem to be running into problems where brain function is concerned. Oddly, this occasionally extends to me as well (or maybe I just like to have excuses...). Cases in point:
- Last weekend Jen went shopping. She bought Natalie's much loved whole milk yogurt. Unfortunately, the plain and vanilla versions of this yogurt come in nearly identical containers. She bought vanilla. Being tired and not wanting to deal with stores, we tried it. Natalie refused to eat it.
- Thursday after picking Natalie up from her babysitter, Jen tried to pick up milk. While they were in the store, she managed to lose the car key. As it was raining, she spent an hour sitting inside the store wrangling a tired, hungry, restless toddler until I could come rescue her with another key.
- Last night, while we were getting ready to go to her stepfather's 80th birthday party, Jen answered the house phone. We have no idea where she put it when she was done. The battery is now dead, so the find handset feature won't work. Over 24 hours later, the phone is still MIA. It's a good thing we have another one.
- Today Jen asked me to make cornbread. Somehow in the whole "how many batches?" conversation, and the distraction of a toddler, I measured four times as much honey into it. We have VERY sweet and slightly odd cornbread to go with our chili tonight.
- This afternoon, Jen changed Natalie's post-nap poopy diaper and then carried it upstairs to de-poop and dump in the diaper pail. Moments later, I heard a call from upstairs. "Don't let Natalie wander around! I can't find the poop!" Luckily, that was found much more quickly than the phone.
- This evening, as she returned from the grocery store, Jen was mid-comment about how she had really made sure that she got plain yogurt this time, when she looked down at the bag and swore. It was plain, but it was also nonfat.
And (should we be so lucky) things will only get crazier from here...
