I hate it when I'm writing an article and a word that I want to use is at the tip of my tongue. I know the meaning and how to use it but I can't, for the life of me, remember the word!
I feel like shouting, sometimes I end up asking someone to help me out. And most of the time, that someone is my son. Imagine how silly it must have looked (to him) when he was just 7 years old. He must be thinking, I thought my mom is smart!
I had to act out the word, explain what it means, give an example of a situation where that word can be used. It's like playing Pictionary. But totally different because I don't feel so good about myself when my son finally suggests a very simple word and I say, "Oh yeah, that's the word".
But he always makes me smile in the end because he pinch my cheek and gives me a kiss while saying, "You're getting so forgetful, Mama".
Have you ever been in this situation?
