Brain farts and other bodily functions

I truly believe that as we get older, our brains get a little more "cloudy," and we have to actively stimulate them ... so as not to have them turn to jello. I also think that with each child, you can become more of an idiot.

I've caught myself walking into a room, and not remembering why I'm there. I have zoned out and thrown the cuptowel in the trash ... or put trash in the fridge ... the list goes on. I never lose my keys, but that's the only thing I have going for me.

Granted, my dear son proved my "age and children" theory completely wrong today. He is a typical six year old. He is always thinking about the most fascinating things to HIM ... and if that's not the current situation, then he is oblivious to the rest of the world.

I picked him up from his Sunday School class. We walked to the restroom area for the children. His sister was already done, and washing her hands in the sinks just outside the restroom doors. I could tell he was zoning out - probably thinking about Star Wars, or his new Spiderman costume. I said, "Sweetie, go potty." I was setting down my purse. My daughter was drying her hands. That's when I looked up and saw it ...

... he was dropping his drawers while standing at the sink! I let out a quick, "Um, honey!" He snapped back to reality, a little embarassed, and ran in to find a urinal!

Now I'm wishing I had waited ... ya' know ... just to see how far it would have gone!

lol I think he might have gone all the way.

Oh by the way I decided to get off my virtual butt and get that website up and running. www.nappyhaireddiva.com is where you will find information on natural hair care for nappy, super curlly, kinky heads. ;-)I am currently waiting for my hsoting provider to activate my site. I purchased it a few minutes ago.

A few mothers on the blogosphere, including yourself, got met thinking about creating a resource site for natural hair care.
Thanks! :)
