I can't believe I did it again! Remember that old saying 'you're only a fool if you make the same mistake twice'? Well I'm afraid I'm officially, well and truly, a fool my friends. The only excuse I can offer is that motherhood has totally comatosed my brain cells.
This morning I was enjoying my few moments peace in the shower, washing my hair with some brand new Dove shampoo. (I like Dove, firstly because they're good products and secondly because they support women to be real - and that I think is important). Anyhoo I reach for the conditioner and whammo - it's not conditioner at all but a second Shampoo with a different coloured bottle. Not again. No! It can't be possible to have picked up two shampoos from the supermarket shelf for what must be the sixth time in the past year. (I kid you not here .... I have an entire shelf of different shampoos in my bathroom to prove it!)
People tell me Mummy Brain is simply because your mind is diverted in so many directions once you become a mother - but I think not. Life in the motherhood has given me brain damage. It must have. How could I possibly make the same mistake six times. You would think after one incident I'd make sure next time. Check. Look twice before putting them in my trolley even. Take some extra care because after all I have made this particular mistake a time or two before - but alas it would seem not. Which leads me to the conclusion that my brain cells are diminished and I am in fact brain damaged.
I guess if I am to look on the bright side of this at least I won't have to buy shampoo again for a while! Am I alone here? Does this type of thing happen to other mummies? Please tell me your stories - it might make me feel better :)
