Backwards Brain

I mentioned in my last post that Lyn doesn't always remember what she wants to tell you.  She does remember that she wants to tell you something though.  She has started saying, at those moments, that her "brain is working backwards."

Lyn has explained that when her brain is working backwards, the thing she wants to tell you is not going to come out.  She knows it is there.  She just cannot get her brain to turn around and work right, allowing her to tell you what she was just thinking.

Mom is trying to make it a light moment when the backwards brain kicks in.  There's no need to play 20 questions because that will just lead to frustration and confusion.

Sometimes, like this, the way Lyn describes a situation is just right.
