Mom Brain



I have a college degree.
I've held jobs that required a functioning brain.
I still do, in fact.

Yet, here I am wondering if I turned my flat iron off.
Or whether I shut the nursery door to keep the dogs out before leaving the house.
Or- worse- whether I put soap in the washing machine.

I don't know if this is a typical mom thing.
Or if it's related to being a working mom.
Or if it's the lack of sleep.

But I'm sure I'm not alone...

So, dish!  
What's your favorite Mom Brain story?!

It is totally a mom thing! I have to unplug my flat iron and put it on the back of the toilet. If I don't I will go home three times to check it. No lie.

I love that quote. I currently am wearing plaid flannel pj pants and if this were a non-working day I would be putting on my yoga pants. HA!

Hugs!

I am always worried about things like these! The worst one lately was I was worried I forgot to put a kid on my cast list and I realized it a week after the cast list went up! Luckily he was on it.... lol

Aww :( I can't imagine - I already worry about all those things, haha.

I hope you're okay! You've been MIA on social media lately. Makes me sad!

Definitely happens to me! I swear at least once I week, I'll leave the house for work (with Luke in the backseat), pull out of the alley and wonder if I closed the alley. So I basically go around the block to pull back in the alley and check if my garage door is down. LITERALLY every single time it has been closed...but the fact that I can't remember doing it drives me insane!

omg I had mom brain even before I was a mom so it's only worse now! haha I'm constantly wondering about things like leaving the my flat iron on or whether I missed our indoor cat sneaking when I let out the dogs because then she'd be stuck outside all day. The other day I even left the fridge wide open and didn't notice for a while. I don't think I've ever done that in my life. haha. Damn lack of sleep!

I once went to the store with my oldest daughter & climbed out of the car to get the baby out of her carseat & she wasn't there! I went into panic mode when my oldest reminded me i left her home with dad! And it's the same stories like this every day:)
