Game Changer

I feel like a.... a.... Well, actually I feel like a person who is not quite able to put together a complete thought. I was just reading a book (about mothering) and there was a personality quiz with words like "Self assertive", "reliable", "go getter" and "leader" and as I was reading the list of words (which I was supposed to circle if they applied) I realized I was unable to process the meaning of any of the words. I mean, I have heard them, I have used them and I have taken multiple personality tests but I could not wrap my mind around what they meant (or if any applied to me).

Why you may ask?

I am kinda tired and suffering from "Mom Brain", yes, I looked it up (on WEB MD) and I have it.

Mom Brain: The inability to think, process or understand many normal activities due to a recent (or ever) child birth. Usually lasts around 1 to 18 years (has been known to effect a person for the remainder of their life). Person(s) may forget simple things (like how to read an analog clock, or digital in extreme cases, how to remember what day of the week it is or what things may be scheduled on said "day").

Causes of Mom Brain are as follows,  Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:
Yeppers, I had a baby. She is now 4 weeks old and her name is Ava Elizabeth Cole. She is a doll (minus colic)!
"MOM! You are so embarrassing, get this off my head!"
Tenn LOVES to dance for, explain the inter workings of Buzz and Woods and talk to his Baby Sissy. SO sweet.

He loves her.


She has mastered the surprised look:

My sweet babes. It has been quite the learning curve but I am feeling more and more "at home" with my family of four. Oh my goodness, family of 4? What the heck?


  1. what causes colic in a baby? i just finished a book where the lady felt ready for anything when she got pregnant except for a baby with colic and got exactly that.

    Before it just sounded like a really uncomfortable thing for the baby but now it sounds horrible and something that you can do nothing about except wait it out.

    can it be fixed??

  2. I love this so much, you're a great mom. I want to be like you one day!

  3. Kaitlin, thank you so much for your comment on my blog about Forget Me Not Friday :) It really made my day!
