Eye-roll. Yes, every Mom and Dad think they are hilarious or that their struggle is “more real” than other parents. I know, major eye-roll at this topic, but stay with me.
I cannot express often enough how dumb I’ve become since getting pregnant. No, not just after the baby arrived, but well before. The “Mom Brain” is a very real, real thing people.
I would like to think that C and I are intelligent people. But the lack of sleep and the endless need to multitask in ways never experienced before can make even the smartest people question themselves on a daily basis.

C was dressing Ev in her room while I got ready for an outing in our bathroom. I hear him shout down the hall, “K, where’s her bra?”

I shouted back, “Babies don’t wear bras, C…”
After a few moments of silence, he shouted back, “Well you know what I meant. Where’s the thing that goes under this dress?”
I again replied, “Nothing but her diaper and diaper cover goes under that dress…”
