It's Alzheimer's, all the time.

We're laying around on the bed, watching the HGTV, and Scooter asked me to rub her feet. Which I did willingly.

I couldn't really deny her the pleasure, since I guilt one or two girls into rubbing my feet almost every night. I'm shameless.

In fact, I just thought, "Hey, I'm cramping my fingers up rubbing the Scooter feet; why don't I have Pooh rub my feet at the same time?"

But what I said was, "Now Pooh, you need to brush my teeth."

She got off the bed and just stood there staring at me. Until I realized what I had said.

You know what's sad, y'all? I do this at least once a day, often more, this talking like I'm in the middle of a stroke. My family has had lots of practice in interpreting my mad ramblings, but how sad?

Do you do this? What's the weirdest thing you've said, or if your memory's like mine, just the most recent?

Come on, spill your guts. Don't leave me hangin' over here with my crazy self.

Oh yeah, I do that all the time.

I can't actually remember any specific examples, but I'll tell the children to get the peanut butter when I mean get their bike helmet, for example.

And my 5 yo boy, bless his heart, always obeys. Poor thing will be neurotic by the time he's 10.

Every day... we are currently laying wood floors in our house and I keep talking about laying tile. I'm just blaming it on hormones.

I know I said something funny like that just the other day, but of course, I can't remember what it was. I goof up like that all the time. I think it's just called being a mom though - what these crazy kids put us through, it's no wonder we aren't TOTALLY crazy!

My mom does this ALL THE TIME! Of course, we give her all kinds of grief for it, which basically guarantees that we'll be doing the same thing eventually.

I'm very glad to hear it happens to other people!!! I do it everyday!!! My family thinks I have a neurological disorder and I really do worry it might mean alzheimer's one day...
