Baby Brain

Posted on | October 31, 2017 | 1 Comment

I swear I’m losing my mind.

I mean… I remember being a little less together after J was born and saying stupid things and what not… but this is another level, you guys. Do you lose brain cells with each child? Am I feeding my intelligence to my child through his milk? Because I am an absolute moron these days.

Yesterday, J finished eating and started to put his plate in the sink. I stopped him.

“J,” I said with authority, “You just saw me put the dirty clothes in the dishwasher. Don’t you think your plate goes there?”

He stared at me for a long minute before bursting out laughing.
“Dirty dishes,” I mumbled. “I meant dishes.”

It happens like that… ALL THE TIME.

It’s like my words are backwards in my head. I’m scared to talk to clients on the phone because more often than not I say the wrong words or I can’t find the words I’m looking for. Is this normal? Is this one of those things that just comes with turning 40 and having a baby and an 8 year old? Because I am slowly. going. insane.

My entire world is poop and pee and “ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba” and for what ever reason, I’m finding it harder and harder to leave that stuff at home. Every now and then I catch myself turning my head side ways and kissing my shoulder like it’s the head of my baby.

Kissing. My. Shoulder.

So far, I haven’t done that in front of anyone but Good. Lord. My brain is absolutely baby-fried with no end in sight.

Yesterday, I forgot C’s costume for daycare and today I dropped J off in Drop Off with a happy “Merry Christmas!” before shaking sense into myself. Tell me there’s a light somewhere that will turn on and I’ll remember that I’m a semi-competent attorney? Please?

Otherwise, I may as well stay in bed. Forever.

Send Christmas Movies… I’m apparently already celebrating, anyway.

    OMG… that is so how it works! Just wait until you are trying to call one kid and you use the other kid’s name instead. 🙂
