Sometimes I feel like my brain is Jello

I finally hung up my college diploma. It got me thinking about all the time and money I invested in that little piece of paper that supposedly says, "I'm smart". I once I had a very extensive vocabulary. I used words like hegemonic and impetus with ease. I was up to date on my world leaders and aspiring world leaders. I found myself trying to converse current events the other day with an old friend and instead found myself cooing and gurgling to my baby because I couldn't follow along.  I noticed this happens to a lot of my "educated" SAHM friends.  Maybe taking a horticulture class will help, but I'm suspicious I'll be like this for the next 5-10 years....

  1. That's good. I already can't keep up with you. If you were much smarter, I'd REALLY have trouble!
