As I've said before, I'm convinced that motherhood kills your brain cells.  It's certainly done a number on my memory cause I can't seem to get anybody's name straight in my household.  I don't know how the hell that Duggar family does it when I can't even keep track of the four of us!

Back when I was a teacher, I was THE BOMB at remembering names -- students, parents, teachers, I knew 'em all.  Now though?  I suck.  Like, big time suck.  It's bad enough that I mix up my neighbors' names every now and then, but it's even worse when it's my own family.  In fact, I sometimes call my kids the dog's name and the dog the kids' names.  I spent a solid ten minutes trying to call the dog into the house from the backyard recently before I realized that I was shouting my son's name out the back door.  No wonder he looked at me like I was a complete jackass when he finally came inside.

I can't even imagine how I'll keep track of everyone the older that I get either.  Someone should really come up with a system for that -- name tags?  Tattoos?  Lobotomy?  Whatever it may be, go ahead and sign me up.  Or else everyone will just be referred to as "Hey, you!" from here on out.....
