I’ve never seen a truer info graphic. Mom brains are especially “insane.” Juggling tasks, meals, a home, and activities for several people is a lot of work. Then, when you add in information overload, and top it all off with some good old fashioned ridiculous expectations and mommy guilt, the ol’ CPU is running at full capacity. I believe this is what they call “mommy brain.” I’d like to give you a snapshot of how a mom’s brain looks. Please enjoy this segment of “Mommy Brain.”
I feel like such a slug. I had 2 1/2 hours to myself today with no obligations, and I'm still wearing my clothes from yesterday. That I slept in. These fleece lined leggings are sooo comfy, though. I didn’t clean much, and was not productive today at all. Well actually, I did make those Oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin Balls I found on Pinterest. Although, I didn't use cinnamon or raisins. Plus, the oats weren’t gluten-free oats, so they are likely contaminated. If the kids get a tummy ache, it’s my fault because I served them sub par oats. What kind of mom does that? The chocolate chips were a good idea, but then they melted. Yeah, these balls suck. Anyway, I guess I wasn’t totally unproductive because I did manage to fit in two episodes of House Hunters Renovation. AND, I fast forwarded through the commercials, so I totally saved time. That was smart. But now I really have the urge to fix up my house. I totally need a cute printed roman shade above my sink for a pop of color! But window treatments are sooo expensive. I bet I can make one myself!

Crap. It’s time to pick up 5yo from school. I wonder if they will notice I’m wearing the same clothes as this morning. And yesterday. Maybe I'll change my shirt so it looks like I'm wearing something different. I can’t wear the same shoes as yesterday because then it will be totally obvious. But I read somewhere you can't wear gym shoes with skinny jeans. It’s a fashion faux pas. Do leggings count as skinny jeans? What about Converse low tops? Are those considered gym shoes? Screw it. I don't care what anyone thinks. Maybe I'll just wear a hat.Life is good.
