I find I stare at my husband flailing my hands and pointing saying "beside the thing, the ...." my eyes growing wider willing him to understand my crappy sign language, all the while I envision my vocabulary swirling, tiny letters, words and sentences circling the toilet bowl as they are flushed away.
This week while on vacation with my friend Nee', who has a 4 month old, it became very apparent to me that I was not alone in this. Her new mommy tongue was as absent as mine. she and I who usually are not at a loss for words mimed conversations interspersed with a new vocabulary that now include words like:
Hold it - wait for it - I don't believe until 6 weeks ago I ever uttered this word...
Here it is: POOPIE.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, stick a fork in my eye now. Please don't tell me it's gonna get worse before it gets better - I make a living with my words!
