Baby Brain. We’ve all suffered. From forgetting what you were talking about mid-sentence, to putting your car keys in the fridge. When we have a baby our brains are overloaded with new things to worry about, is the baby too hot? Is their poo supposed to look like that? Have they always breathed that fast? Then we have to remember what time was the last feed, and when the next nap is due, all the while calculating how many hours before our heads can hit the pillow. Add sleep deprivation to the mix and it’s no wonder we might have the odd mishap.
Here are my top five baby brain fails.
Sitting in the passenger seat of the car.
The problem with this is that I was supposed to be driving the car. I had loaded my four-year old into the car, and the baby, and all the baby’s paraphernalia, then got in the passenger seat and put my seat belt on. What’s even sadder was it took the little voice from the back saying “Mummy, why are you sitting in that seat?” for me to realise.
Filling the kettle with milk.
In my defense it had been a particularly long night with a lot of feeds. Thankfully I didn’t boil it.
Tumble drying dirty clothes.
Going to empty the washing machine to discover that you have warm dirty clothes rather than wet clean ones. Not only a complete waste of time but also shrunk some clothes that were not meant to be tumble dried. Unfortunately I haven’t done this just once. Not even twice. Three times.
Cooking eggs until they explode.
I didn’t even know they did that. But trust me if you put some eggs on to boil and then happen to forget about them, there will be a big bang in about 45 minutes time. A black saucepan is the least of your problems when you are cleaning egg of every surface. And when I say every surface I mean the worktops, the tiles, the floor, the hob, the fridge, the windows and the ceiling. It smells pretty bad too.
Leaving things behind in changing rooms.
So I was in a hurry, I had left the baby with Daddy so I could zoom into town and try to get a nursing top. When I left the changing room ready to purchase my new top it felt a bit chilly. But then it would if you leave the changing room wearing your jeans and a bra. Must remember to put all clothes back on.
Baby brain. Causing shame and embarrassment to all new mums everywhere.
