Mushy Mommy


No, this post isn't about my darling friend The Mushy Mommy, it's about how I have mentally turned to absolute mush.
Last night I attended the Bump Club Chicago Expectant Mommy Dinner with some other expectant mommies in my swim class. The speakers focused on breastfeeding, specifically the first few days/weeks of Baby's life. They gave away a bag full of breastfeeding goodies like milk storage bags, a lactation cookie, bottles, creams, lotions, gel pads and coupons to everyone who attended, which was a nice little bonus!

Because I had all of that breastfeeding knowledge tumbling around my brain, all night long I dreamt I was doing skin-to-skin with Billy and when I would wake up, I would panic and look around for him on our bed. I am so ready to meet him, I already miss him!!! He's so real in my dreams, I hate waking up and realizing he isn't actually here yet.

Needless to say, it's getting more and more difficult to focus on anything that isn't Billy or Billy-care related and I am lucky if I remember to put my underpants on in the morning.

Thankfully, my office is full of understanding and wonderful individuals who are very forgiving of my forgetfulness and general lack of mental sharpness.

Did your brain turn to mush when you were pregnant?
