Until about a year ago, I thought I had a pretty good memory. Ask my husband. Then I got pregnant, became a mother and it went all away. I have become absent-minded. When I was about 6 months pregnant, we had an appointment with a private clinic to find out the sex of our baby. When we got there, about 10 minutes drive from home, I remembered I had apple crumble cooking in the oven. Oops.
Now, it is refrigerated apple juice in the cupboard, our milk in the baby’s bottle, or I will reach for her bottle instead of my own drink (ewww ! Have you ever tried baby formula?), forgetting to take my glasses off before stepping into the shower, overcooking food…and the list is long. I don’t know what it is. The research says it has to do with mother wanting to put her child’s needs first. It makes sense. I think being tired and super busy with baby/babies/children also adds to the absent-mindedness.
So ladies, and gentlemen, tell me, what did/does baby brain do to you? Can’t wait to hear your funny stories !
