Since having children my Brain has totally taken a vacation. I no longer have the College Educated Brain I paid so much for, no...I have something even better...THE MOM BRAIN!
Definition of Mom Brain:
A place where a bunch of useless information hangs out & crowds out all of the important things you should know & remember.
Let me enlighten you if I may~
How many of you can remember all of my children's birth dates, weight, height, social security numbers, but can't remember that you were doing laundry 30 minutes ago & need to put those clothes in the dryer so you don't have to rewash them for the third time? Oh, I'm the only one with Mom Brain? I think not...
Hold on to your dirty laundry...it gets better~
When speaking to my children, I go through all of their names & throw in a few names of kids that don't even belong to me because I just can't spit out the name of the face staring right at me. Please tell me I am not alone in this? I sometimes give up & say..."Hey you with the head!" That way I am for sure to get it right!
How about this talent~
I actually amaze myself with my ability to know exactly where all of my kids lost items are & can rattle their hiding place off without pausing when asked where they are, but cannot for the life of me remember what outfit I wore just yesterday or what I had for breakfast.
Shopping with Mom Brain is always fun~
My trips to Target go a little something like this...leave reusable bags in the car, forget to use the coupons that are in my coupon holder right inside my purse & finally leave the store only to realize when I get home that I forgot the most important item on my list back at Target. I love when that happens. Grrrrr!
A.D.D doesn't help Mom Brain either~
I love it when I am making dinner & I forget to add an ingredient because my A.D.D kicks in while I am looking for the ingredient in the pantry & decide to organize the shelves instead. Those are always my award winning dinners. YUM!
I realize this disease is self diagnosed & totally made up, but I swear I have it. Cards & emails would be appreciated to help me get through this crazy time.
*I am not really sure if there is actually a cure for Mom Brain, but I am guessing it starts about 18 years after the birth of your last child. I am just saying...*
Do you think you have Mom Brain?
