When was the last time you were in mid sentence and then totally forgot what you were saying? Or how many times a day do you spend looking for your keys? Your phone? Your child 😛 ? Or that time you forgot you had noodles boiling on the stove only to discover they were pure mush, or the pizza in the oven that now looks like a black frisbee…. Anyone else leave the water sprinklers on alllll night?! Well if this is beginning to sound like you, then you likely have a case of mom brain!

 

Mom Brain is a legit thing! But, when you look it up, it refers to the brain of new mothers, or you’ve probably also heard of pregnancy brain. I feel like my mom brain case wasn’t so bad until we ventured into the toddler years! Or maybe I was just in denial before. The busier I get with more to remember, it just means there is more to forget!

When I saw this shirt at Mom Life Must Haves, I knew I had to get it! It is also super soft and comfortable and you can never have enough t-shirts!

Do you have Mom Brain? If you answer yes to most of these then you likely do!

 

My Top 5 Signs that You have a case of Mom Brain:

  1. You look for your phone when its in your hand
  2. You leave your grocery list at home
  3. You walk into a room only to forget why you went to that room
  4. You get half way through a sentence and forget what you were saying
  5. At least one meal a week is burnt or over cooked!

I love her to bits and wouldn’t change a thing, but I’ve got some work to do to get a handle on this Mom Brain! These are some of the things I am working on {I did it all for the cookie sweatshirt from The Sweet Life Apparel}.

My Top 5 REMEDIES for curing Mom Brain:

  1. Write it down. Everything, all the time. I keep track of important appointments in my phone, have daily to-do-lists in my notes app, set my alarm when I am cooking. Make sure to not only enter important things in your phone, but set reminders with alarms! Otherwise you will forget to check your phone 🙂
  2. Ditch the distractions. Scrolling pinterest is not a good activity while you are waiting on your pizza because you will forget about it and your pizza will burn!
  3. Minimize and prioritize. Sometimes less really is more. Although us mothers are great multi-tasters, I’m working on limiting just how many things I can do at one time and focus on what’s important.
  4. Feed your brain. Eating a healthy, well balanced diet, always helps our brains to function better and remember more.
  5. Less stress. Do whatever it takes to reduce stress. Yoga, mom night out/in, read a book, exercise.
