24 silly baby brain stories from mummy bloggers!

1. A few weeks ago, in a mist of sleep-deprived baby brain, I did a little food shop the other side of town. I got home and realised I had left the 2 shopping bags in the car park, right next to where my car was! A sheepish phone call to check if they’d been handed in, and an hour’s round trip later, I was reunited with them!!

Is that the silliest thing I can blame baby brain on? 

2. In another car park incident a few months prior, I went shopping for an hour not realising that I’d left one of my car doors wide open! 

It got me wondering about the silliest things other mums had done because of baby brain so I asked my fellow bloggers…. there are some corkers here!

3. Today I sent a pitching email to a company I was really keen to work with; it was a really good pitch, but I forgot my attachment, so had to send an email apologising profusely with a red face and told them I had re-attached (I hadn’t again). I tried again, apologising yet again and would you believe it, I’ve forgotten again. I’m too embarrassed to send a fourth email…. bloody baby brain. http://www.lifewithboys.co.uk

9. Today almost 15 months after having Freddie I left my house keys at my mums after staying with her. Not so bad but I only realised when we were five minutes drive from my house! Lucky mum had her key otherwise it would have been a 60 mile round trip to get mine! http://mummytomylittlecheekymonkey.blogspot.co.uk

10. I threw dog food into the washing machine. Not sure if I was trying to feed the dog or put the washing on, I couldn’t remember which needed doing! http://www.fizzypeaches.com

18. I flew to see my brother for the weekend. Went to the airport to fly home and couldn’t work out why my boarding card wouldn’t let me through to security. When I checked it I had booked my return flight for the day before! To be fair I had an 18 month old who didn’t sleep and was 5 months pregnant at the time. I managed to get home but it was a very expensive mistake πŸ˜‚ http://tobygoesbananas.co.uk/

19. I took my new daughter downstairs, after my c-section, in the pram. 48 stairs, no lift and no-one to help. Anyway, I kept feeling like something was wrong. Got to the bottom and realised… I’m wearing no shoes. The long climb back up for my shoes was horrendous. http://www.katykicker.com πŸ™‚
