Warning: Pregnancy Brain at Work

Last night after dinner I left clean-up and bathtime to Brian and headed out the door to run some errands I didn't get done during the day. One of those stops was, of course, Target. But it was a boring trip with just the basics on my list. Milk, bananas, tin foil, shaving gel, and diapers were among the items that topped my list.

Just before 8 o'clock I paid for my items and dashed out into the parking lot in hopes of making it home for a goodnight kiss. One missed deer later (a story for another time) and I was pulling into the driveway in the nick of time. I grabbed my purchases, put them on the kitchen counter to unpack later and ran upstairs to hear the ending of William's last bedtime book.

After he was snug as a bug I came back downstairs to put away all my Target items and then proceeded to lounge with hubby on the couch for the evening.

Fast forward to this morning. I wake up and go to get William out of bed. I lay him on the floor and reach into the storage basket to grab a diaper. The stash feels rather low. That's when I remember. DIAPERS! I never brought the diapers in from the car? No, worse. I never put the diapers into the car because I never grabbed the box from the bottom rack of my cart while I was in my rush in the parking lot!

At first I panicked. I mean the diapers were half the cost of my entire bill. But then I remembered it was Target and they would probably be willing to hear out my story. During breakfast I called up the store and before I could even finish explaining the lady told me she's had the box waiting for me since last night. **Sigh**

Running errands outside of the house was not on my list of things to do today but I guess so goes the penalty of pregnancy brain.
