Hilarious Mom Brain Moments As Told by Real Moms
Mom brain is all too real, and it starts during pregnancy. Yup, the tiny little fetus doesn’t just take over your body and sucks out all the nutrients it needs to survive, but it also starts to take over your mind. Before you know it, you will have very little capacity to think about anything else besides your baby, and with the help of sleep deprivation, you will have pretty much no brain cells left to deal with everyday life. Hence, when #mombrainattacks, moms are left in wonder of how their highly functioning brains have turned into a mush. Just the other day, I had my son’s stinky socks in one hand and a banana peel in the other (and no, I did not get to enjoy the banana – it was my son’s afternoon snack), and I was rushing the kids upstairs to take a bath. I barely remember the socks and banana peel leaving my hands before throwing my kids in the bath, but somehow my two hands were free to scrub them down. Then while getting my son and daughter ready for bed, my son started giggling loudly and pointed at the garbage. Apparently, I had thrown his socks in the garbage and lo and behold, the banana is in the washer.
Now, mom brain is nothing to be ashamed of or feel guilty about. Having mom brain means that you are being a good mom, because your child is your #1 priority. Plus, hilarious stories usually ensue and I have asked fellow mom bloggers to share their best mom brain moments with us!

“My favorite is when I’m getting ready to leave so I look for my phone. Look, look, look only to realize I’m talking on it. I’ve even been caught by the person on the phone saying I can’t find my phone!” ~ Sarah from Boca mom unfiltered
“I remember being preggo w/ #2 and getting a shower & shaving my legs. Later that night, realizing I only shaved one leg.” ~Amanda from everydayamanda

“Just the other day I was in the car with my mother and our whole plan for the day was to go to Walmart. Low and behold, halfway there, I had no idea where we were going and had to ask her! She thought I had gone nuts.” ~Aimee from KrazyKraftyMomma
“I got into someone else’s car at the grocery store and couldn’t figure out why my key wouldn’t fit in the ignition.” ~Starr from Adulting Mama
“I just recently liked my friend’s Insta post of her and her family on a plane to FL (we live in OH). Then promptly texted her 5 minutes later asking if she wanted to meet up at the pool.” ~Jenna from Make the Most of It
“After taking a shower at 5 days postpartum, I opened the utensils drawer in the kitchen and grabbed a fork instead of my hairbrush. Talk about sleep deprived!” ~Gabby from Mom Makes Joy
“I was texting my mom and I had prepared bruschetta and lunch for myself – the baby was sleeping. I was getting annoyed that bruschetta was taking so long to cook. The baby was going to wake soon and I would have to share with her … I hadn’t put it in the stove yet. Waited another 5 min before I could eat and my main lunch was cold by then.” ~Christina from Tapped Out Traveller$
“Right after I had my son and had to take him to a pediatrician appointment. I seriously could not find my car keys anywhere. I looked everywhere! I about gave up when I finally found them….in my refrigerator.” ~Jessi from The Coffee Mom
“This just happened last week. The tank was empty so I stopped to get gas. Finished filling tank, couldn’t find my keys. They were not on the minivan middle consul like usual. After briefly searching the car I determined they had to be in the gas station trash can, that I had thrown them out with the Starbucks cups I tossed. Searched ENTIRE gas station trash can. No keys. Went back in the car, they had fallen between the console and the seat. Did I mention both kids were in the car??” ~Molly from My Sweet Lilac
“When I was pregnant with my son, I handed my two-year-old a frozen waffle right out of the freezer and then said, “Here’s your breakfast!” The look on her face told me that something wasn’t right!” ~Leah from Less in the Nest
“When I first had a baby I could not remember what things were called. I accidentally referred to the airport as the “plane station” and my husband still hasn’t let me live it down.” ~Devon from U Ready, Teddy?
“When I was pregnant I was driving to work in my car (an automatic) my husband drove a stick shift at the time but I wasn’t driving it. On my way to work I suddenly started driving like I was in my husband’s car. I kept pushing the brake thinking it was the clutch. I couldn’t figure out why my car was stopping (in the middle of the street)!!! I had to pull over and put the car in park to regain my composure.” ~Brittany from Imperfectly Perfect Mama
“When my first daughter was a few weeks old, I forgot to put a diaper on her during a late night changing/feeding and swaddled her up sans diaper. Needless to say, she got a bath first thing the next morning. Thankfully, she didn’t poop.” ~Shannon from Mom Without Labels
“I was rushing to get us out the door to go play at the Botanic Gardens. However, I needed to start a load of towels to be ready for swim lessons when we got home. I dumped the towels in the washer and went on with my day. I couldn’t find my phone and realized I washed it too!” ~Sophie from Real Foodie Family
You simply attach the Tile Mate to your keychain and every time you lose your keys, all you have to do is open the app on your phone and “ring” your Tile Mate. The Tile Mate will play a melody of your choosing and you can then follow the music to track it down. It also works the other way – if you cannot find your phone but have your Tile Mate, then you can press the button the Tile Mate to “ring” your phone. Now if you had washed your phone in the washing machine… well I can’t help you there. Until next time #mombrainattacks again, stay safe, stay sane, and Godspeed.
