I sometimes tell people that I used to be smart.  I guess that deep down I still consider myself fairly smart, but my opinion of myself is much less than what it once was.  The Lord uses all sorts of things to humble us.  I think that I am definitely losing brain cells with each child!

Several years ago, I was writing and one of my children interrupted me for something.  After taking care of whatever the crisis was, I tried to go back to writing but my pencil was gone.  Hmm.  Maybe it’s in the kids’ room.  No. Maybe I put it on the counter.  No.  The bathroom? No.  Finally, totally exasperated I said out loud "Where?!…..  Oh, there it is." 

 It was in my mouth.

  1. LOL! It's funny how we can have something right in front of us and not even know it, even when we feel it there but we are so used to it we don't recognize it.

    Thanks for participating in the Blog Tip Challenge!

  3. Is that like the "pen behind the ear" or the "reading glasses on the head"? Very Funny!


  4. My family sitting next to me is about to ask what I'm laughing about … that was great.

    I found your blog through the pencil challenge. I'm #23 on Mr. Linky.

  7. Ohh too funny I too have done this but with my car keys and believe it or not I was holding them the entire time I searched my purse. I felt so stupid.

    by the way what's the pencil challange? I found your link on the lapbooking yahoo group.


  8. This story is unbelievable! REALLY? I have been known to lose a pen behind my ear. 🙂 I guess my mouth flaps too much for something to get forgotten there! 🙂
