I posted a few things on freecycle to give away, and someone contacted me stating that she wanted them. I emailed her back but she neither called me nor emailed me again.
A week later I sent a reminder, wondering if she still wanted them. She apologized and explained that "mommy brain" had taken over. We all know what that means: between taking one kid to soccer, another one to ballet, making sure they are all clean and fed, that they made their homework, brushed their teeth etc., she never had the time to write me back. I totally get it.
I can't help but think that, if I were to say that between pills, injections, doctor visits and scheduled intercourse I forgot something, I'm not sure I could simply sum it all up as "infertile brain".
