On our way back home from the Type-A Mom Conference I was talking to Daddy B and somehow one of my mommy brain moments was reffered to as, “Momnesia,” and I thought that was a great name for a website. I don’t really want to own two mommy sites, nor do I have the time, so I thought maybe I could incorporate my momnesia into this blog.
I really want to let everyone, parents and non-parents alike know it’s okay to think one thing and do another once you become a parent. I think that’s really the true spirit of momnesia. There were many things I swore I’d “NEVER” do when I became a mommy that I find myself doing all the time, or even moments that I’ve looked at someone and rolled my eyes only to do that exact same thing with my child. Really in parenthood, whether we like it or not, some things just work for our children and some don’t.
My mommy motto is, “No matter what, as long as you’re not hurting anyone else you really just have to do what is best for your own family.” So I hope you’ll take a moment, ready my Momnesia Monday posts, think about some situations where you’ve had momnesia, dadnesia, kidnesia and maybe even share some stories here too. Check back each Monday for some Momnesia favorites from me, your very own MommyB Knows Best.
