Your brain is mashed potatoes, so what? Mashed potatoes are delicious! Whether you’re a mom of one or five, having kids does something magical(ly tragic) to your brain.
All in a day’s work.
Well earlier today I tried to put my son’s waffle in the knife block thinking it was the toaster, and then later on I yelled at a fruit fly that was bothering me and told it to go play. So yeah things are fine, I’m fine.

Sometimes when your brain drops the mic, a kind and benevolent safety net steps in….
Me: Hi! I’d like an avocado lime ranch…🤦🏼♀️
Her: Would you like a salad with your dressing?

… sometimes not.
I hate when I’m halfway through typing a long word and I know I’ve strayed too far but I just keep typing random letters hoping auto-correct will save me and it’s just like, “comtkivsref? nah, bitch, you’re on your own”

Don’t expect the line from Point A to Point B to always be straightforward.

Sometimes you don’t arrive at Point B at all.
Anyone else ever turn on the wrong burner and cook nothing for 30 minutes 🙄. #mombrain

It’s like there’s an Etch-a-Sketch in your brain just erasing things willy-nilly…

Both overbuying & persistent under-buying are par for the course…
I have been to the store 20 times in the past 48 hours. I have spent eleventy million dollars.
I still forgot the milk.

…and retracing our own steps like a hamster on a wheel.
My Facebook year in review is just me restarting the washing machine over & over again because I forgot to put the wet clothes in the dryer.

Anyone can be forgiven for mixing up their gadgets, right?
Walked up to my front door. Took out car keys. Pointed car keys at my front door and hit the unlock button. Did not work. #Mombrain. 😳

And clothing items. (It’s a landmine out there.)

Luckily kids are resilient. They will be just fine.
That moment when you hear, “Mom, how much longer do I have to stay here?” and realize you forgot you put you kid in timeout a half hour ago.

And even more luckily: We’re all in it together. For better or worse.
There are two boys at my kids’ preschool who are perfectly put together. Their hair is combed and I hear they eat veggies. Today their mom called me frantic. She forgot school was closed and had a meeting. She asked me to watch them for a bit.
Welcome to the momsquad, Karen.
