A few months ago Melanie told me something that I thought was incredibly clever.
"Mom, you should be extra smart right now because you have two brains!"
I praised her for great thinking, then explained that unfortunately, half the brain in my head slid down to the baby.
Upon giving birth, this has proven to be true, since I feel like I only have half a brain now.
I've decided that new mommy brain is far worse than preggo brain. I wonder how long it takes for those cells to regenerate... if they do. I think they do, because I remember feeling significantly smarter than I do right now about 10 months ago.
Thank goodness we have plenty of books in my current reading level around here right now, like Hat by Paul Hoppe and a few Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems (we love anything Mo Willems).
