contrary to how frazzled, sleep deprived, and scatterbrained we feel at most times, (and at times just plain stupid) it seems that mommies are actually more intelligent than we make out to be. Hard to beleive when you walk out the back door with the baby, purse, diaperbag, coffee, socks, shoes, panties, bra, coat, and skirt, hop in the car and pull out only to realize half a block later that your not wearing a shirt and your coffee is on top of the car (yes, sadly and embarrassingly enough, I've done this). I've also hopped in the car and took off in the morning barefoot. what do you think of the research and what are your mommy brain moments, come on now, I know you have at least one, tell me I'm not alone here!
Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children. ~William Makepeace Thackeray
I really can't think of any that I have had. I think since the birth of my son, I have actually gotten quite a bit more common sense. Which is a good thing, because I could be really ditsy sometimes! There was one time, on my way to work that I changed my pants, but not my top...so...I had to turn the car back around. Luckily, I realized it in like 5 minutes!
i was really bad, i had everything that i needed and i was running late for my 6 week check up after having my son and i got his diaper bag ready put him in his car seat, got me all ready walked out the door got in the car turned around to ask if he was ready and NO BABY!!! i left him on the kitchen floor! luckily i didnt even get out of my garage! he was so sweet and innocent he didnt even realize his mom almost forgot him!
So it was a week to the day after my daughter was born, it was my birthday. My sister was in town visiting and offered to watch my daughter so that SO and I could go out to eat and I could have a drink. Well, it took us a while to find a restaurant because it was saturday night. We finally found one.
I step out of the car and think 'man my foot feels funny' so i took a couple more steps but i knew something wasn't right. I get to the back of our suv and look down at my feet. I told SO "We have to go home." He says, "Why?" I say, "We just have to go home" So he's like, "Ok, is it because you're freaking out over our daughter?"
I look at him, "No, I'm wearing my house slippers!!" All dressed up, and I was wearing slippers....It was pretty funny though...
