Mommy Brain

For all mothers ~

If you've left the crayons to melt in the car,
And forgotten just where the car keys are,
There's a perfectly good way to explain :
You see, you've come down with "Mommy Brain"

When you're not sure where the past 8 hours went,
Or whether the phone bill check's been sent,
If you've left the laundry drying in the rain,
It's just -- you guessed it -- Mommy Brain

If you find yourself chatting for hours on end,
About diaper prices with your cyberfriends,
You've just caught a particularly virulent strain,
Of that affliction known as Mommy Brain

If you left your bags at the grocery store,
Or completely forgot what you went there for,
If you called the cat by your baby's name,
You can bet that Mommy Brain's to blame

And if you know the words to "Goodnight Moon" by heart,
Or you study your sleeping babe like a work of art,
If you're always surprised by how time is flying,
And the thought of that first birthday starts you crying....

It's unavoidable girls, and I feel your pain,
For I too suffer from Mommy Brain
But I'll admit one thing -- of this I'm sure :
I hope they never find a cure.
