I have one of those terrible colds. The kind that you get once every five years or so. The kind where your nose/throat is so clogged that you can't seem to pronounce the N sound. It's also the kind where for some reason your eyes just drip water.
Because of it, I've been in a fog all day...probably because I'm wearing my glasses. This may sound ridiculous, but sometimes it seems like if my eyes can't focus - neither can my brain. My glasses are about three prescriptions old, so even though they help, I'm still a bit visually impaired.
Back to fog. At about 5pm I looked at the clock, thought back over the course of the day, and couldn't remember a single thing I did. Was I on the couch? No. Did I nap? No. Did I talk to anyone on the phone? I don't THINK so (disclaimer - if we did speak, please forgive any unfortunate things I may have said). So, where did this day go? I have absolutely NO idea. I do remember three things. 1. My friend Mandi took my kids. Talk about a lovely lady - that's probably the reason they are safely tucked into bed at this point. 2. I spent most of the day with toilet paper stuffed up my nostrils. 3. Ella said something to me that made me think, "That'll probably be my BDEM."
BDEM: Sometimes Ella's cute little grin catches me off guard, and I just have to tell her what a cute and sweet kid she is.
"Ella - do you know how much I love you?"
"Yes, Mommy, so much!"
"That's true, sweetheart - you are just so stinking cute!"
She came over, very close to my face - put her hands on my cheeks and whispered,
"Mommy, I just ate boogers."
Water: 40 oz. Still about 30 short. Dang.
