What is momfog?
Momfog is the condition of a mother’s brain after countless hours of WonderPets, Spongebob Squarepants, and Yo Gabba Gabba! It’s the result of being slobbered on, puked on, and peed on. It’s the state of mind that says, “I have a free night! I think I’ll get caught up on laundry, playdate schedules, and rearranging the kids’ closet” and being HAPPY about it.
Do you remember when you had outside interests? When your social life didn’t depend on ballet class or football practice? It’s in there. It’s just lost in the fog.
I’m not suggesting that life can ever be what it was before children. Why would we want that anyway? Children are awesome. My children are who I am and it is my pleasure (most of the time) to go out of my way for them. They define my life. BUT, there is room in our lives for serious books, adult themed movies or theater, or ridiculously priced lattes in pretentious coffee shops.
I’m hoping this blog will be a place to discuss these things, ALONG WITH the crazy stories of motherhood and the unbelievable lengths our children will go to undermine our efforts to “branch out.”
My name is Erin and I live in Coastal Georgia. I am a working mother to five unique, loud, and awesome children. Every day is hectic and confusing but I’m learning to appreciate (if not love) every minute of it.
