A ‘Mommy Brain’ Story

Few evenings ago, I had to rush to our local No Frills store to get something that I really badly needed to use to make supper. I waited impatiently for my husband to come home so that he can watch the kids while I am gone. Β When he came home I told him that I needed to go to the store to buy essentials. He called after me, “what do you need at this hour from there? Can’t you just manage to use what we have and then make up something to eat tonight?” Yeah right, coming from a guy who is so picky when it comes to food and give me baleful looks when he is not impressed by what he sees in the dinner table! I did not bother to answer his rhetorical rantings and got in my car and drove off to the store before it closes for the night.

    I have mommy brain all the time πŸ™‚ I write everything down so I don’t forget it, because if I don’t I won’t remember!

      yeah, it is the curse. Only consolation is that, as time passes it will get better, experts say. But what happens, when we get old πŸ™‚ hmm…something to think about.

    I had a mommy brain moment today! I knew what I wanted from the store, drove there, got out of the car… and luckily realized I’d forgotten my wallet before filling my cart!

    Mommy brain stinks! Sorry it got you. But, hey. At least you got ice cream. I think that was a fantastic way to happen that lost moment.

    Stopping by from SITS.

    I don’t have mommy brain (since my son is 18). However I am sooooo very forgetful. If I am running to the store for something. I must take a list or I WILL leave without what I need, and often that one thing is THE main thing I needed at the store. I also have to follow a routine that is pretty strict. Like when I come home, I immediately have to put my keys down before anything else. If someone even talks to me, I screw up. πŸ™‚

    I had a case of mommy brain yesterday while doing laundry. I go back to the basement to put the load in the dryer. But realized I didn’t shut the lid to the washer the last time I was down there.

    I am always having a case of mommy brain.

      That one is familiar! Before going to bed at night, I keep on forgetting if I checked the front and back doors are locked or not. I do this few times before I settle down for the night πŸ™‚ Yeah, blame my brain!!!

    You’re doing great if you only have Mommy Brain moments on occasion! My youngest is nearly seven months old, and I still feel like I’m in a constant fog. Right now my Mommy Brain is preventing me from remembering a specific Mommy Brain moment…but they happen almost daily, I promise!

    Mommy brain doesn’t go away. My youngest is almost 15 and I still have bouts of it. As mothers we have so much going on that I think our brains go into overdrive and things get misplaced, you forget what you went to the store for, you forget to turn on the oven before putting dinner into it and 45 minutes later you realize when its not cooked. I so related to your post, thanks for sharing.
