I saw this once on a bumper sticker and thought it was just a witty little cliche and couldn’t relate one bit.
Sure, back then. Back then when my mind was sharper than a tack, my memory even sharper. Back then when I didn’t have an extra layer around my mid section, which doesn’t bother me unless I see a photo of myself.
I have been told that breast feeding does this. It makes you dumb. Or it could be the mandatory late nights where I am awoken by falsetto crying suddenly, just as I have dozed off. It’s like my brains are draining out through motherhood. I walk into J’s office to say something and the minute he looks at me I forget what I was going to say. I decide what to fix for dinner and forget when I get to the kitchen. I go to look up a recipe and the minute I sit down at the computer, I forget why I am there.
It didn’t used to be this way. The only other time I ever had this experience was when I was taking Ambien, which made me wakeup stupid. Well-rested, but dumb like a rock.
Is this where mom’s get their bad rap? I have an advanced degree. I am not supposed to be dum. oops. dumb.
Maybe its time to go back to school.
