Where in the world is Carmen San Diego?

How about we tell a little story about how incredibly dim-witted I can be at times?

Aaron calls me at work and tells me that they had an earthquake in Taiwan today. At this point, my mind starts spinning as I try to figure out what is wrong with the word Taiwan. I suddenly can't remember where I've heard it before and actually think he's pronouncing it wrong. Seriously. I wish I were kidding.

So I finally come to a conclusion about it, but need some reassurance. I ask, "In Mexico?"
Aaron pauses for a very long time and then replies, "what?" I again ask, "Mexico?"

His response once figuring out that I was unfortunately serious and that I am responsible for carrying our child, "Umm, China."

At this point, I realize that this isn't a Jeopardy type question and that I'm an idiot. Of course it's China. All I can figure is that my jumbled pregnancy brain was stuck on Tijuana. Which is indeed in Mexico. Or is it???


  1. Just blame it on the baby... that's what I do... several times a day.

  2. OMG!! I am laughing so hard right now!! I too have had the same kind of brain farts recently!!! I was out to lunch with a friend of mine (who I met in yoga a couple months ago) and all of a sudden I was looking at her across the table while she was talking and it hit me...I couldn't remember her name for the life of me!!!!! Wha??? I mean this was NOT the first time we've gotten together and I see her frequently, but my mind just went totally BLANK!! After a few minutes it came back to me, but obviously I had stopped listening to her since I was despretly searching my own memory for her name!! I'm such a mess (and a bad friend)!!

    I have never felt so out if it....blamin' it on the baby!!! LOL


  3. Oh no! Baby brain has set in.

  4. so i was reading the blog and thinking...where is Taiwan?? Totally!! Not kidding!! Until I read the words china I couldn't figure out what was so funny. do you think I still have postpartum brain?? Ha! ha! No lets be honest, I was never good with Geography.
