This video always has me in stitches… Women: Know your Limits
I wish I was half as clever as the lady in this video – have to confess, I know nothing about the Gold Standard. In fact I’ve noticed myself becoming increasingly ditsy in my “old age”. Blame it on Mommy Brain.
I’ve done some crazy things lately. We searched for an entire weekend for the TV remote. My husband found it in the fridge that Sunday night. Amazingly, none of us thought to look there, I’ve left a few odd things in the fridge since about half way through my pregnancy. Along with things in cupboards that were destined for the fridge.
My latest crowning moment was when I tried to iron one of my husbands shirts with a cold iron. The funny part was that I was finding ironing really hard work, pressing harder and harder. I commented to my husband that this must be one of those crinkle-look shirts. I was just starting to say “this iron even seems cold” when I glanced at the plug and noticed it was out. I laughed so hard the tears were rolling down my cheeks.
You see it was little old me who suggested we unplug the iron just a few minutes before this incident, when the electricity went off due to overload.
Well… at least we have a gorgeous kitty cat for me to stroke… (if you’ve watched the video, you’ll know what I mean.)
Laugh at yourself first, before anyone else can.

Interestingly, some researchers are finding Moms may actually be growing bigger brains in the first few months of their babies life… Have a read of this article. Or this article.
There’s hope for us all. 😉
And… if this is true, imagine how big the brains are of women with many kids! Respect – Mamas!
Has your brain also gone to mush since you’ve become a Mom?
