Like I mentioned recently I wanted to change the name of the blog, so I did!
What do you think?
It's common knowledge to any woman who's birthed children, and I imagine any mother who adopted as well, that babies and young children suck the brains right out of your head. They aren't even nice enough to wait until they are born either, they suck it from you in utero.
When you have children there is just SO MUCH to think about at all times and so many distractions (just now Little Man is whacking me on the arm to get my attention because he wants more candy) that it's hard to remember little things like where did I put my keys? Or When is that meeting again? Or What's my name?
My brain is so jam packed with child-related information that it is literally bursting at the seams. Well, not literally... that would be a pretty gross mess, a mess that I most likely would have to clean up myself.
Once upon a time I was a smart person, with a great memory, straight A's, you get the picture. Then I became a Mom and had to fill my brain with things like which ointments/creams work on what kinds of rashes, safe fever temperatures and other illness related cures, discipline strategies, sleep and eating schedules, sports and girl scouts schedules, who needs what items of clothing, who wants what for birthdays and Christmas, and all the other stuff that piles up in a mom's brain throughout the years. If you're a mom, you know that I haven't even covered the tip of the brain-crushing iceberg in this paragraph.
So there you have it, the reason for the new blog name...
I used to have a brain. Now I have small children, and although I miss my brain and hope to hear from it again some day, I love it!
