Is Adoption Brain Real??

My pregnant friends tell me "baby brain" is a very real thing.  I am always hearing crazy things they have done or forgotten to do like only shaving ONE leg.  A friend finding the remote in the fridge was particularly hilarious.  So my question is:  Does "adoption brain" exist??  I am fairly certain I have it!!  If it's not a real thing, I think I may have lost my mind y'all!  

We have been feverishly working on all things baby recently.  It just seems to pass the time.What in the world did we ever do before all this adoption "stuff"??  It seems as though it's always been here.  I would like to know what I did with all my time before paperwork, nursery painting/sewing/planning, and fundraising!!  It seriously has consumed me the last few weeks.  

Anyways, back to the part where I am fairly certain I have lost my mind....last week I realized there was one day I did not brush my teeth until late in the afternoon (ew!  Y'all I work in a dental office.  This is major!!)  Thank goodness this was my day off.

Secondly, the next day I came home after a long day at work and kicked my shoes off only to notice I had one sock on turned inside out.  I am OCD about stuff like this.  It troubled me for hours I had worn my sock wrong side out.

Third, and probably most troubling is the fact that I may or may NOT have rolled through a red light when turning right WITH a police officer right behind me.  I say may or may not simply because I cannot remember...I knew the officer was behind me on my way to work.  I carefully watched my speed as I naturally have a lead foot.  However, my mind must have drifted because after making a right hand turn I snapped back to reality and thought, "OH MY GOSH!  I think I ran that red light!!"  

I debated with myself the rest of the way to work if I had bothered to come to a complete stop.  Apparently, the cop had better things to do that day because he never pulled my over.  Thank goodness because I feel certain the topic of adoption brain would have been my defense.  I can see a picture of my ticket on facebook now...  #ipromiseofficeradoptionbrainisveryreal #hedidntbuyit

Do y'all have this phenomenon??  Please tell me I am not the only one!  I would love to hear your stories.

  1. Um, I think it has more to do with being distracted...I'm sure there's "just fell in love" brain and "I'm going through a divorce" brain...!
