Mommy Brain, Anyone?
I've heard about mommy brain and now I get it. It seems at all times your mind is going a mile a minute. Sure, it might appear as though you are browsing online or watching tv while your baby is napping but what you are really thinking is, "How long has he been down? I wonder if he is going to wake up soon? Is he breathing? Let me go check. Ok, good, still breathing. Hmm, there sure are a lot of dishes in the sink. Crap! The dryer went off, hopefully he is still breathing. Oh yeah, Real Housewives of NY is on - Kelly is so crazy! Doorbell rang, Buddy is going nuts, don't wake the baby! Baby wakes up, is it time to feed? Is that poop I smell? Buddy, no, I don't want to play now! Gotta get the phone..., etc." So its not a shock I forgot my laptop at work on Friday (using our personal one now) but I caught myself doing some silly things lately.
The other night I opened up my prenatal vitamins got a cotton ball and tried to pour some on the ball - yup, I thought it was my face toner.
Then this morning, I decided the cupboard was a good place to put a carton of egg whites.
Anyone else suffer from mommy brain? When does it go away?!?!
