The day I took the garbage to Coles

Last week I did a “Caz”. This is my husband’s affectionate name for me when thing just go wrong…..

I was all ready to leave the house. Packed my nappy bag, had my phone, wallet, keys and the garbage hanging off the stroller handle so I can dispose of it on the way out.

I was then in Coles trying to navigate the crazy people there on a Friday. As I swerved to get out of someone’s way I realised I still had the purple garbage hanging off the stroller!!!!

Oh my god….

There was a moment of “how did this happen???” closely followed by “how the hell do I get rid of this discreetly before I run into someone I know and would have to explain”!

I looked around, paid for my items and quickly exited Coles. I was trying to rack my brain on where there would be a large garbage bin on the main street….then I saw it.

A bin across the road that did not seem to be full. I crossed the road and then tried to cleverly (or not so cleverly as the case may be!) look like everything was normal and move up close and then  quickly picked up the garbage and dropped it into the bin like it was a normal everyday thing.

I am sure some people in the cafes across the street must have seen me – a crazy mother dropping her rubbish down the main street! Honestly I would have died if anyone saw me. And now I share this with everyone on the internet – not sure what my rationale is here……

I have always done embarrassing things but I do feel since I have had a child they seem to have become more frequent and have kicked up a level.

Do you also have extended baby brain post birth? Is this a syndrome? Make me feel better by sharing something you have done – pleeeassse!

    Oh my Gosh, this is hilarious! You could have been writing about me. I read somewhere that baby brain is a myth, but it definitely exists – we are living proof!

      Haha! Found this on “Mummy brain”. I’d like to think that its because I am so focused on the baby that it means I might forget other less important things  http://news.discovery.com/human/psychology/mommy-brain-maternal-changes.htm

      glad to hear maddie is feeling better! i was racking my brain to give you suggestions and all i could come up with was when the babies were sick i would give in and sleep on the couch with them on my chest and me propped against the arm. it let me get some decent sleep too (and cuddle time).

    Oh god – yes! Totally know this syndrome .. although I’ve never tried to exchange the rubbish for the shopping. After Nate arrived there were/ continue to be numerous instances of Baby Brain! … feeling exceptionally proud of getting myself and 2 kids dressed, breakfasted and ready to leave the house of a morning only to realise I’m about to leave the front door wide open as I drive off … leaving the house in slippers (either me or Charlie) … forgetting to eat a meal myself because I’m focused on getting 2 kids fed and out of the house on time … being on autopilot and turning up at the gym to drop Nate off at the creche, only to discover I’m operating either a week early or late …

      Love it! Nice to know I’m not alone. I think it is a massive feat to leave the house with 2 kids – slippers or not!

    Tried to open my front door with an Oyster card.
    And ran around the Science Museum shouting that I had left my toddler in the elevator, only to be told by my 5 year old that he was sitting in the stroller that I was pushing.

    I dispose of the bag of nappies sometimes on the way out and left them in the pram hook all the way down town the other day! Nice.

      Haha! Love another garbage escapade! Thanks for sharing

    That is too funny “Caz”
    I have three step children and I constantly get baby brain… Not quite sure how that works, but I am totally going with it.

    • [email protected] says

      Haha! Yes I think baby brain is highly contagious !! 3 step children would keep you busy!

  6. Dani says

    Yes Baby Brain definitely exists! I had my first child 6 years ago, 2 more since then, and basically constant baby brain ever since. Can’t think offhand about the silly things I’ve done, (I’m sure there are many) and clearly memory loss is one of the symptoms.

    Hope it gets better for you but don’t hold your breath!


    • [email protected] says

      Thanks Dani! That makes me feel much better. It totally exists! Have a Merry Xmas!

    Oh no! Baby brain definitely exists. I have turned up a week early for an appointment once!
