Mommy Brain
(Mother Mommy Poems)

If you’ve left the crayons
to melt in the car ..
And forgotten just where
the car keys are.

There’s a perfectly
good way to explain ..
You see, you’ve come down
with “Mommy Brain.”

When you’re not sure
where the past 8 hours went ..
Or whether the phone bill
check’s been sent.

If you’ve left the laundry
drying in the rain ..
It’s just – you guessed it
Mommy Brain.

If you find yourself chatting
for hours on end ..
About diaper prices
with your cyber-friends.

You’ve just caught a
particularly virulent strain ..
Of that affliction known
as Mommy Brain.

If you left your bags
at the grocery store ..
Or completely forgot
what you went there for.

If you called the cat
by your baby’s name ..
You can bet that
Mommy Brain’s to blame.

And if you know the words to
“Goodnight Moon” by heart ..
Or you study your sleeping babe
like a work of art.

If you’re always surprised
by how time is flying ..
And the thought of that
first birthday
starts you crying.

It’s unavoidable, girls
and I feel your pain ..
For I, too, suffer
from Mommy Brain.

But I’ll admit one thing
of this I’m sure ..
I hope they never
find a cure.
