We have all heard that saying, “pregnancy brain.” Any woman who has been pregnant knows what I am talking about here. When I was pregnant with my little cherubs, I forgot an envelope with $200 in it at a restaurant when I took out my money to pay the bill. Needless to say, my waiter got a very generous $150 tip!
Nobody tells you that “pregnancy brain” turns into “mommy brain.” I still can’t remember anything. I am keeping Post It® in business all by myself over here with all of the notes I have stuck all over the place!
Because you are now a mom, all of these will become true at some point or another. Here are the things that I have forgotten:
To put the clothes in the dryer.
The loads of laundry that I have had to rewash because I forgot to put the clothes in the dryer are endless. Not to mention, the number of times I have had to redry clothes that are in the dryer because I left them in the dryer yesterday and they are now a wrinkled mess.
My train of thought.
Wait, what was I saying? You get the point here, right?!
My children’s names.
As a child, I remember being shocked that my mom could dare call me by the wrong name. Fast forward 40 years and I’m calling everyone by the wrong name. I haven’t totally lost it though. I still call the dog by the right name.
