I have what is known as Mommy Brain

I've discovered something about being a mom. There have been studies that make what I'm about to say fact. The official terminology is "Mommy Brain"

My I.Q. has always been a respectable 135-140. I know because, every few years, I've taken one, starting when I was in School. After having Matthew, I took one online and discovered it had dropped to 132. Disapponting, but I could live with it. I don't know why it's always been so important to me, but it has.

Daniel is now one and I've been feeling a bit out of sorts lately. Slower and more confused. The back of a cereal box has become quantum physics. I decided to get back online and take another I.Q. test. Three I.Q tests later and my suspicions were confirmed! It is now 110! That is 22 points, shocking isn't it! I've read that "Mommy Brain" is caused by learning all the new skills needed for raising a child. Changing them, feeding them, keeping them from sticking a cheerio up their nose. Is there really not enough room in my brain for this without thowing out what's already in there? I've realized that if I continue having children, before long, I will be "The Missing Link"
