I've lost my Mind

That's how I feel every single day of my life. I walk into a room, and I can't remember why I'm in there. My kids go down for a nap, and there's so many things that I want to get done that I end up starting one task and only finishing it half way before beginning another. My purse winds up in the freezer. I write something down so I won't forget, only to forget where I placed the piece of paper. I've been known to give a sippy cup to my husband, and hand a fork to the toddler.

One time I was filling out a form, and when it asked for my first name I instinctively wrote,"Mommy."

There was even one time where I thought I'd lost a child, only to realize I was holding the "missing" child. Yes, please don't judge me too harshly.

 What is going on? What has happened to my brain?! I'm not pregnant, I'm getting a full night of sleep(most of the time), and I'm taking care of myself.

 And then I remember the four little people I take care of every day, and I remember this little thing called "Mommy Brain."

I've heard it's normal for this season of life. That it's temporary.

Here's hoping that's true.. and even if it's not, that I can at least start remembering my own name.


  1. LOL I can completely relate! :)

  2. My friend and I were just talking about this today while we watched our kids at the park. I don't know about you, but I feel that the spiritual portion of my Mommy brain often feels like this as well. We were talking about how Grandparents/older generations have such a privilege to be prayer warriors for their children and grandchildren. Not that we as Mom's don't do it, but there are just some days I have to trust that the Lord knows what I'm trying to tell Him. ;)
