Tubelight

I was putting Bugz to sleep when D walked in.

D: Let’s watch a movie.
Me: enh? It is 11:00 at night and I want to sleep.
D: Come on. Watch with me.
Me: I am really tired and want to sleep as soon as she sleeps.

He tried a few more times after which he gave up and headed down by himself.

Bugz was being extra fussy and it took me good 2 hours to get her to sleep after which I passed out. I woke up next to a kiss on my cheek.

Me: What happened?
D: Nothing.

I drifted back to sleep to be woken up by a cranky Bugz off and on during the night. In between the entire sleep deprived, brain-snooze night I suddenly have a moment of clarity ‘Oh! that is why he wanted to spend some time with me.’ Which was followed by what else but trying to get some sleep, which meant I forgot all about that one moment of clarity. Morning was as it is every morning. Buzz words from the other room and the tubelight finally switched on.

There is no excuse, none what to so ever. I have become a total tubelight where nothing registers anymore and I can’t remember anything past 5 minutes. So today I will try to make up for it by making some good food. Hope I remember to get all the ingredients when I am out grocery shopping. But in the meantime I need get a handle on this memory thing. 8 hours of sleep a day would help big time but past experience tells me it is not happening any time soon. 

Tell me people what all do you do when you realize your memory fails you? I need help.

  1. Memory is failing you say? You have become a tubelight you say?

    But..I was born a tubelight! What about people like me?! If some wise commenter gives you a solution here, I shall be the first to try it 😀

    I haven’t helped you one bit here, have I?
    Let me try – write it down quickly someplace maybe. Has helped me at times ( as long as I don’t forget to see that note later. Heh)

  2. You got to meet me and you will be happier for I am worst. I go to get something and forget what i came for ..

    but i guess its hard being a mom of two .. 🙂 for some reason i am always tired these days I dont know why .. you have a reason I dont 😦

  3. Awww how sweet… as far as memory goes, ‘failing memory’ is directly proportional to motherhood!! I put something in the microwave and a minute later it has boiled over, and I have no clue what I had put in there!!!

  4. WHATTTTTTT ??? we have a new born bugzy ???? comfy i am soo sorry i missed thsi wonderful occasion. God bless our new lil baby with lots of good health and cheer. May this wonderful family always always stay happy and with big smiles on their face.

    And oh i forgot what was your question in the post..talk about memory 🙂

    1. Hey there is nothing to be sorry about. You have your own sweet little darling to care about to remember anything else. 🙂

      Thanks for all the wishes 🙂
