Mom Brain for Life

Is it just me or is anyone else completely off this week? In my mind, it’s Tuesday. I’ve been a whole day off for two weeks now.

My brain is turned off or something.

I went to work this morning, oh so tired. My eyeballs literally rejected my contacts today. So, two cups of coffee later, I was sort of ready to function for the day.

Also, for the record, I went to the gym tonight with out eyeballs. Yep. Drove there, worked out, drove home to find my contacts were in their case because they didn’t work out this morning. I completely forgot that I had taken my glasses off to change and didn’t realize I couldn’t see.

You guys, I’ve lost it. 100%.

Today was Rae’s first day back from break, which made me kind of sad. It went so fast. Now that I’m working again, the days go so fast.

I read an article today about loving the stage you’re in, because it’s not forever. It really made me stop and think about my life right now.


These two little girls that share my DNA are so full of spunk and sass. They are loving and kind. They learn new things everyday & explore the world.

They may drive me mad at times, but I know I’ll miss it some day.

I already miss Rae’s tiny little voice and her tiny little hands. She has grown up so fast. Everyday she asks a thousand questions which I try to come up with an answer for.

I can tell how much school has changed her, in a good way. She is so smart and uses her imagination.

Mia is almost two, going on six. She wants to do everything big sister does. She’s just as sassy, silly and smart as her sister.

I remember watching Rae and thinking how cool it is to watch a tiny little human learn new things. Same with Mia. It is so rewarding to be a mom.

I know certain ages are harder than others, but I’m going to do my very best to love the moment. Not wish it away. I know I will miss those tiny hands, purse full of snacks and toys, socks all over the house, and picking up messes all day long.

Love whatever stage you’re in. You only get one chance at this life.

With it being a new year, now is the best time to start something new. Step away from social media and your phone for a certain time frame each day. Completely unplug and enjoy your life.


  1. You are so spot on! They grow up so fast and at the time you can get frustrated but your attitude about embracing the moment is spot on girl. Embrace it, love it, appreciate the little things because in a blink of an eye they are grown.
    Thanks for sharing!
