    Mommy brain is real, and it got us thinking whether our SmartParenting.com.ph readers have also experienced it. We asked them to share their most epic “mommy brain moments” and they did not disappoint — read below for their hilarious answers.

    The post that started it all. We wish we were making it up, but this is a true story. I know because it was my sister whom my mom left on the bus. To this day, it’s my sister’s favorite story to tell as an icebreaker.

    Bath time emergency

    ‘Yung naliligo ka tapos si baby biglang iiyak. Takbo ka agad…[pero] nakahubo ka pala. Buti na lang walang dumaan! — Madelyn Tablatin

    Glass of water

    Sa sobrang puyat ko at antok, hihingi sana ako ng tubig sa asawa ko pero imbis tubig ang mabanggit ko, sabi ko, “Daddy, paabot diaper at wipes.” Nung inabot niya sa akin nagalit ako kasi sabi ko tubig ang hinihingi ko! — Caren Boo

    Where’s my baby?!

    When my bunso was a few months old, nag-panic ako. “NASAAN ‘YUNG BABY!” Lahat ng kasama ko sa bahay hindi nila karga tapos wala naman sa crib. Una, na-shock sila kasi lakas ng boses ko parang may sunog, sabay nag-tawanan sila. Paano, yung baby ko, nag-b-breastfeed pala sa akin that time. — Gelai Paruli Regis

    Mixed feeding

    I have a 1-year-old and a 6-month-old. Whenever they ask for milk, I feel like I’m a barista fulfilling their orders. And just like a barista, sometimes, I also fail at getting the orders right. I’ve given formula meant for my 6-month-old to my 1-year-old and vice-versa! #sabawmoment — Mabelle Lim

    Getting ready for school

    Maaga pasok ng anak ko so inayos ko siya and pumasok na siya. Bumalik ako sa pagtulog nang bigla akong nagising at hinahanap ko anak ko! Akala ko tinanghali ako ng gising at late na siya…naalala ko nakapasok na nga pala siya. — Thezsa Alviar

    Eating in the bathroom

    Papaliguan ko si LO (little one) after niya kumain. I realized nadala ko rin sa banyo ‘yung hard-boiled egg na ulam niya. — Den Ibuki

    Ready for solids

    Pinapakain ko panganay ko na 3 years old, tapos hawak naman ng kapatid ko sa gilid ko ang 2-month-old kong anak. Subo ako ng subo ayaw ngumanga! Biglang lapit ng panganay ko, doon ko lang narealize na ‘yung 2-month-old pala sinusubuan ko. Kaya pala ayaw ibuka ang bibig. — Jemmafe Cardeño

    Peek-a-boo!

    When my son was a few months old, nakadapa kami sa kama playing peek-a-book. Kunyari natutulog ako, sabay didilat at gugulatin siya. Ang lakas ng tawa niya! Until natuluyan akong nakatulog. Pagkagising ko, napabalikwas ako ng bangon sabay hanap sa baby ko! Ayun pala, nakatulog din siya nakadapa sa tabi ko. — Jemma Car

    Too early for school

    When my three kids were in high school, ginising ko silang tatlo para mag-prepare na for school. Sunod naman sila kahit antok na antok pa. Kain, ligo, bihis! Biglang pumasok ‘yung friend nila na nasa tapat lang ng bahay namin. Ang aga ko raw gumising at bakit naka-uniform na mga anak ko. Sumagot pa ako, “Papasok na, ano pa ba?” Bigla siya tumawa sabi sa akin, “Seryoso, tita? Ala-una pa lang ng madaling araw!” — Winette Dela Torre

    “Brekky for hubby”

    Magluluto ng breakfast for husband, since namiss ang pag-prepare simula nung nanganak. Lagay egg sa kawali saka namalayang wooden comb pala ang hawak pang-prito! — Weng Aquino
