it, my kids are almost 4 and 6 years old, but I still have mommy brain. (I
still have the baby weight, too, but let's not speak of that now. Actually, let's never speak of that again.)
Not all moms have mommy
brain—that forgetfulness you first start experiencing in pregnancy that
goes full-tilt once you have your babies. You can't remember a thing, you've
gotta write everything down. And then you forget where you put the piece of
paper where you wrote everything down. It's a miracle you leave the house
wearing pants each day. (Wait, am I wearing pants right now? Oh, yes. Phew.)
No matter how
old your kids are, you might still have it, too. Here's how to tell:
have no idea where your keys are
You know you
had them a second ago. Are they in this bag? No. The diaper bag? No. Are they
in this other bag? No. How about this one? Oh, wait, they're in the car? Oh
yes, you knew that.
But really, it's OK. Once you become a mommy, priorities shift. All of a
sudden, you've got a new focus, you've got the most important thing in the
world to worry about: the well-being of a tiny little human. You could
have one kid or five, but either way, your mind will always be on your kids.
Their health, their happiness, their school lunch.
So, give yourself a break. You
may not know where the keys are, but you know where your kids are. (Wait, you
know where the kids are, right?)
