Sequencing, Part 3

A few days ago, my son was talking to me while I was preparing my breakfast. I got out the Cheerios box, put cereal into my bowl, and got the milk out from the refrigerator. Then I poured some milk into a bowl.

OK, I poured the milk into the wrong bowl.

But sometimes I wonder: do I do these things because I have a brain injury, or because I'm a mom of young kids?


  1. because you are a mom :) When I was young my mom put orange juice in my cereal :/

  2. Grace, I think its part mom and part the inability to multitask after a stroke. I am truly impressed that you would take a picture of your foible. Congratulations, you've entered the 'I made a mistake, I can blog about that' self-assurance category.

  3. This is the kind of thing that can happen to a grandmother--only then you wonder if you have Alzheimer's!
    love, Mum

  4. Thanks, people. Whatever the cause, the mistake livened up the morning, in a good way.

  5. This photo made me smile. My prayer is that I remember it the next time I make a mistake so I can laugh at myself instead of being beating myself up.

  6. Sometimes I can laugh. But if I'm really hungry (or tired), all bets are off.
