Why I’m Miserables.....
Yes, excuse me if I’m not quite up to speed at the moment, I had a baby three months ago – enough said. However, recently I saw my chance to get back with the programme and take my little one along to a parent-and-baby screening.
Gosh I was excited. This is something I’d always liked the sound of, and meant to do with my first baby four years ago. But finally, me and another friend with a recently delivered bundle of joy had sussed the date and time, made sure our older ones were in extended childcare and were even planning to go for a late lunch afterwards – well it was the week of my birthday.
I flounced around the night before, getting ready. Carefully chosen wannabe yummy mummy thrown-together clothing? Tick. Early night (as soon as the baby nodded off I jumped into bed, regardless of the fact rest of the house was still awake)? Tick.
Before snuggling down, I quickly checked online for how to get there and parking.
Horror of horrors.....the screening had been THAT DAY, not the next.
This had to have been the cruellest case of baby brain yet.
I rang my friend in the morning and as it turned out she’d hurt her back doing Zumba and couldn't drive. So it really wasn’t meant to be. Still, we’d dreamed a dream......
Any baby brain stories you’d like to share? Go on, cheer me up......
