There are those who say becoming a mother makes you smarter, and, indeed, I've accomplished some great things — such as PARENTING — in the years since my kids were born. Also, Parent Hacks debuted when my son was in kindergarten and my daughter was a baby. I'm not being coy. I'm not arguing that I'm dumber, just more distractible. These days, I can barely read a full-length book. I leap up from whatever I'm doing to do something else before I forget. There is radio static in my head.
What about you? Do you have Mommy Brain? And (just to stir the pot a little) is it a female thing? My husband seems to have little problem filtering out the mental noise when he wants to get something done. One could argue he's teaching the kids to respect his time more effectively than I am. What do you think?
