Too Dorky to Forget

I mentioned in my previous post that I forgot about the tooth fairy. Thank you for all the reminders. J.P was delighted to receive his monetary gift the next day! It was like he had won the lottery!

However, A.R wasn't so happy with my odd and crazy behaviour. He was invited to a birthday party last week, and I completely forgot about that too. Oops! What's wrong with me? Lack of sleep? Old age? Mommy brain? Hmm.

And the other day, I couldn't believe what I said. When the boys come home from school, I always check their agenda for any homework or upcoming events. A.R attends French immersion school so obviously most of his homework, and reading is in French. So, from time to time, I'll ask him the meaning or translation of words.

As I was reading his agenda, I asked him, "What does cantabs mean?"

A.R looked at me funny and said, "Mommy, remember I told you we have to collect aluminum can tabs!"

Oh man! I'm such a dork! I never laughed so hard in my life.

(You know, we have to work on your spelling.)

Maybe I should take French again. Better yet, take a vacation!

Hey, March Break is next week!

At least, I didn't forget.


  1. I could just see me if Lil Bits were in French Immersion School...that's tooooo funny! (Did you ever find the translation?)

    Glad you're remembering spring break. We are, too.

  2. It's mommy brain. I have it too. :^)

  3. Who could forget a break in March! ;) Enjoy yourself.

  4. Ohhh that made me laugh!!

    I had a world map in my room when I was little and one night my mom was looking at it and kept saying "What is Al Aska?" She was dead serious.

    The map had been folded and left a crease - she just about died when I told her that was Alaska!

  5. Yes, thank goodness for Spring Break! Next week here too! I am so excited!

  6. OMG I get like that all the time! Even my own mother makes fun of me! LOL

  7. Finals all next week, then I'm free!
    I don't even know what to do with myself.

    I would go to France, but there is that money thing.

    And how is it kids remember a birthday 3 months out, yet they can never remember to flush a toilet or close the door all the way?

  8. Now that is funny! I have said Dorky things like that too, and I the tooth fairy has forgotten to come to my home....Following you from the friday hop!
