10 Classic Symptoms of Mommy Brain

Posted by Jill Smokler on April 2, 2012 

Last week, I spent ten minutes looking for the phone, while actually on the phone. Sadly, this type of thing is far from unique. I swear, I had a brain ... once. Now? I have Mommy Brain. Here are some symptoms my friends suffer, as well. Sound familiar?

1. My mental checklist when leaving the house actually has 'pants' on it. Pants? Check.

2. I didn't notice I had two different shoes on until the end of the day when one of my kids pointed it out to me.

3. I walk into the kitchen, open all the cabinets, and have no idea why I'm there.

4. I write myself a note so when I get to the car I remember where I am heading.

5.  Today, I was sitting at my desk, and thought oh, I need to take my medicine. Turned, opened the desk drawer, stared at my purse, and went, "What did I open this for?"

6. After a long hard day and getting some me time finally ... I sat down to watch TV. .. tried to use my phone as the remote ... thought the battery was dead and kept hitting it.

7. Lately I'd send a TEXT MESSAGE and then hold the phone up to my ear to hear the response.

8. Spent 10 minutes trying to figure out why my crockpot wouldn't turn on only to realize I never plugged it in.

9. I lose my car pretty regularly ... no, not the keys ... the actual whole big SUV. I can never remember where we parked because I was chasing a toddler or something. Once spend close to an hour wandering the wrong parking garage.

10. Panicked in a parking lot as I stared at the empty back seat of my car. Somebody stole my sons carseat!! Who does that!??? Oh wait ... that wasn't my car.

I remember the first time my hubby and I went out after our son was born and we left him with my mil. W get to the restaurant and I turned to open the back door to our van to get the baby and panicked when he wasn't there. My hubby spent the next 5 min laughing. We had dropped the baby off not even 10 min before.

I always plug my iPad or phone in to charge, yet never plug it in the wall.

Walk in a room and have to retrace my steps to figure out why I came in there.

Tell people I'll come back for something and forget who or why.
