Red in the face

This morning I noticed a large zit forming on my forehead. For those who don't know, toothpaste is a wonderful way to get rid of one quick. Plain old white toothpaste will absorb the oils and give a refreshing feeling. It is also great for bug bites and ivy rashes... ANYWAY... I digress.

So. I put toothpaste on the zit... as Miss K wasn't due to come for 2 more hours. I made a mental note to wash it off before her time of arrival. (********Those of you who don't have kids... mental reminders don't work as well once you have kids! *****Those of you who do, you know how SILLY of an idea that was!) I'm sure you can already figure out where this is heading...

Miss K came. I chatted with her mom. Mom of Miss K left. We all played with books and toys in the living room. Changed diapers. Got snacks together. Packed up kids. Headed to chiropractor.

Taking all 3 toddlers into the Chiro attracts a lot of attention. So, I chatted with the people in the waiting room. Chatted with the receptionist. Basically, we were social butterflies. (*** You almost HAVE to be with twins!)

I wheeled the kids into Dr. E's office. As he is shutting the door he says, "What is wrong with your forehead?!"

OHHHHHhhhh SHHHHIIIIITTTTTTTT!!!!!! is my first thought. I forgot about the DAMN toothpaste!

I laugh it off. Meanwhile, I am licking my fingers and using the spit (yes, very gross, but I had to get rid of it ASAP!). I am sure I was beet red. All the while I am explaining about trying to get rid of my HUGE zit and how many uses toothpaste has, besides cleaning your teeth.

I played it cool. I am proud of that... but MAN was I embarrassed!

Oh well. He didn't think much of it. He is a great guy. But, I think we might be causing a delay in his having kids any time soon. That sometimes happens around us.

Anyway, Ha ha moment on me. Such is life.

Making mental notes just doesn't work as well once you have kids...all those brain cells to remember are just about gone lol At least you can laugh about it now :)

Yep, sounds like something my mommy brain would do, too.

I don't know how I missed this post, but I am still laughing. I SO understand this. One time I forgot to put on blush and I used me lipstick. Well. I dotted the lipstick on my cheeks and forgot to rub it in. I talked to at least 5 peopel before someone asked me what was wrong with my face.
