Still Suffering From Mommy Brain
When I was preggers, I did and said things that may have given off the vibe that I was a total space cadet. Some may refer to it as "Mommy Brain." It's said that expectant moms go through a stage of forgetfulness during their pregnancy which should improve after birth. One journalist even wrote a book about how motherhood improves our memory. It seems like my brain is still having a bit of trouble retaining information. Like any other weekday, I woke up and got my little one ready for daycare. It was Pirates and Princess day, so I dressed her in this cute ensemble she got from her Godmama Tiff. Despite early morning rain, sunny and warm weather took over in the afternoon. So, I couldn't pass up taking a quick pic.
By the grace of God I found the expressway and headed toward home. On my way, I noticed that some highways were transformed into streams and were almost impassable. I arrived at my daughter's daycare within 2 hours. Then reached my front door about a half hour later. It took me more than twice the normal commute time, not including picking up my little one. What an insane day! I took this video clip while waiting at a red light. Princess didn't seem phased by this wicked weather because she fell asleep. You can hear thunder and see lightning in this clip. It was pretty intense.
I've read that a woman's memory improves after giving birth. But, clearly mine hasn't. Not only did I forget that I had the day of from work, I forgot my own forecast!
