Mama Brain

I've been afflicted! It's a terrible curse... I call it "Mama Brain". It's like pregnancy brain, but so much worse. After all, add in a little sleep deprivation, screaming baby, and a desire to just collapse in a heap, and you have Mama Brain.

Here is how I know I have it. I scheduled 2 doctor's appointments. For the same day. At nearly the same time. On opposite sides of town.

Yeah... stupid.

One is for Drake- it's his 1 month wellness check up. I think this one involves shots? UGH.
One is for me- It's my 2-week-post-staple-removal-check up. I really don't want to go. UGH

I'm calling my doctor to reschedule, because it is easier to get a different time or day than the pediatrician, and I am sure we will be there ALL DAY LONG anyway.

I haven't done much in the way of ...well... anything. I am still tracking and doing good. I eat a lot but hey, what matters most is I am being accountable for it. (I ate 70 points yesterday, for instance.) I managed a shower yesterday- first one in at least a week! Hey, that's pretty good when you consider I've been tending to the babe. I think I figured out a work schedule that works for everyone- I can get as many hours as I used to get, Brian still gets 6 hours of sleep, I get 6 hours of sleep, and Drake has us both about equally through the day now. Win.

Hope every one else is doing good.


  1. You sound like one busy mama. Good luck with everything!

  2. Sounds like you're getting into the groove! :) Way to adapt!
