Fill in the Blank

I've been forgetting words lately. Today, it was high chair and cello and monkey. I've forgotten the word elevator when I was standing right in front of one, and I've been known to ask Paul on occasion, "Do you know where the, uh, oh shoot what's the word... umm... oh! Camera! Do you know where the camera is?" Maybe that's why writing is so much less stressful than speaking. If I forget a word while I'm typing, I can sit and stare blankly at the screen for as long as I need to and no one is the wiser.

Does anyone else deal with this problem? Am I the only one who loses words? It's as if my brain misplaces it for a second (or two or three), then it comes back to me and I can't believe I could have ever forgotten that word! I'll chalk it up to Mommy Brain until further notice.

Anyways, I hope everyone has a very nice...'s that word? Oh! Weekend! Have a nice weekend, all!

I would say it's pregnancy brain..but rather, perhaps sleep deprivation? ;) Over here I have 2 languages to choose from. So if I forget the English word, I say the German one...and vice versa!
