Most mornings this is actually 'almost' fun, but yesterday after my night of insomnia I was feeling more than a little fuzzy in the head. Sandwiches made I was packing the other bits in. Fruit, yogurt and chocolate chunk muffins and off to fill the drink bottles. When I walked back I was a little annoyed to see one of the muffins missing and straight away raised the question - "who took it?" The biggest pink looked at me quizzically and proceeded to tell me that she had watched me put one muffin into her sister's lunch box and then take it straight back out and put it into her lunch box. What the? Why would I do that! I'm sure I put one in each box. As the biggest pink is not known for being untruthful (or wrong for that matter ....... unfortunately) I counted the muffins left in the container and sure enough she was right.
How could I be so sure I'd done one thing when clearly I hadn't? Is my brain that unreliable? I raised this question with a mummy friend, while out on a much needed walk of our local lake, later that morning. She nodded her head in agreement and started telling me some of her own mummy brain tales. This raises the questions 'does motherhood mess with your mind'? My youngest pink will be three next month - so surely 'this too should be passing' and I should be returning to the intelligent sharp minded person I once was? It appears not. On a positive note we had a hoot of a time laughing at each other's ludicrous stories and played with the idea of writing a best seller based on a collection of them.
Do you have a funny Mummy Brain story to share? Can you tell me when I should expect this phenomenon to end? Or should we all just learn to live with this new 'post mummy' normal and laugh at ourselves regularly? Your thoughts on long-term Mummy Brain please.
