When I was pregnant with our oldest, Maeve, 7+ years ago, I quickly discovered how real “pregnancy brain” was. Previously, words had flowed quickly and naturally from my lips. Suddenly, I was constantly trying to jolt common words out of the back of my brain where they seemed to have gone into hiding. I didn’t expect this to carry over after the birth, but wow, did it.
Having kids makes you stupider. It’s just a thing.
Witness me in all of my mom brain glory as I share some favorites from this month. (hint: watch past the end slate to see how bad it really was 🙂 )
Here are the July favorites if you want to check them out for yourself:
Bug Soother – this stuff is safe and natural, and actually works!
NIrV Discoverer’s Bible for Early Readers – Maeve is able to read this pretty well on her own. We looked into a bunch of different children’s Bible options, but I wanted something that was just like the regular Bible only a little easier for her to read, and we are more than happy with this one.
$1 Organizing Containers – Maeve and I both can get stuck in the organizing container section of Dollar Tree!
