Today, let us see how smart you really are. Please allow yourself to answer honestly the following question.
True or False: Pregnancy messes with brain function.
Since some of you are in denial or have biases of which will never be changed let me enlighten my point of view with some specific instances from recent weeks.
Nick: "So I had to write a lame mock blog post in class today about BP's current situation and how people are reacting to it."
Syd: "Do you know anything about BP? You have only been in there with me and I doubt you were paying attention."
Nick: "What in the world are you talking about hun?"
Syd: "BP, the section in Nordstrom."
Nick: "You are joking, right?"
Syd: "What other BP is there?"
Nick: "This conversation should probably just end here."
Syd: "No, please tell me. Is there a more popular BP?"
Nick: "To most of the world, yes. To you, nope."
Syd: "Oh, okay. Well, I will just keep my mindset of what BP is. It is probably better for both of us."
Nick: "Good plan."
Twenty minutes later we are returning home from class and Syd graciously offers to make breakfast. Eggs and toast are on the menu and I hear her begin to crack eggs. A few seconds later a long groan follows. I ask her if she is alright. Silence. I walk over to the sink. Shells and yolk are swimming in the basin. Lesson learned...a bowl is needed to catch the eggs before they slide down the drain.
As all you know, Syd is the most detailed oriented person when it comes to subjects such as crafts, school and weddings. Somehow, pregnancy has affected this slightly. It is not often that Syd lapses common sense or judgment, that is usually my daily failure.
So there it is, pregnancy does mess with brain function.
Seriously though, you should all know I love my wife with all my heart and she is already making a fantastic mom. It's an innate talent for her and our girl is very blessed to have such a smart, good looking, humorous, talented, good looking, loving and good looking mother.
