  • I think it's because we usually have about 15 different things going on in our minds at once. And if you're not forgetting things now, just wait until you have more than one child and they're all teens at the same time. You'll really be a walking talking blithering idiot with glazed eyes!

  • You are more distracted now. I swear everytime I start heading toward a room to get something or do something a child intercedes and then I completely forgot what I was in that room for!

  • I think, that while the baby is in the womb, he/she somehow manages to climb out of it and into your skull. While he/she is there, he/she feasts on a portion of your brain, sort of like a zombie.

    Or it could just be the fact that you're always interrupted when you're trying to do something.

  • You are just multitasking a lot more, so it's easy to fumble stuff up.

  • After becoming a mother, we have more things to multi-task while running off ALOT less sleep!
