What Motherhood has Taught me About Management

I wrote about the Mommy Brain in a previous post as well as in a 17 June Irish Examiner newspaper article titled “Mum Knows Best.” As per National Institutes of Mental Health neuroscientist Dr. Pilyoung Kim, women’s grey matter actually GROWS after childbirth. We become smarter. Raise your mugs of coffee and say a toast, mommies, because your…

Mommy Track not Mommy Brain

Women increase in intelligence after becoming mothers. That old adage about mommy brain or baby brain is bunk. It’s been

written about and studied. Katherine Ellison wrote a popular book about it in 2006, The Mommy Brain.  This does not explain why, during the last weeks of pregnancy with my first boy and for…

A Tribute to My Fellow Moms....Happy Mothers Day!!!

I think I have always wanted to be a "Mom". Even when I was little I enjoyed playing with dolls and pretending that I was a Mom. I bathed them and fed them, loved them and pretty much thought I had this mothering thing figured out.

As I became a teenager and young adult I realized I had a want and need to have a career. Hmmm...that didn't fit into my original Mommy role, Mommy didn't go off to work and leave her dolls/children with someone else. Times were changing and I began to… Continue

The Female Brain


The Female Brain

My notes from reading “The Female Brain” by Louann Brizendine, MD

Here are a few facts about the difference in female and male brains. Yes, there is a huge difference! I know it’s such a shock to everyone.

1.Men and women have the same number of brain cells but men’s brains are larger, so there is more room.

2.Women have 2 ½ times more brain cells devoted to communication and social orientation. Men have 2 ½ times more cells devoted to… Continue

20 Ways to Boost Your Baby's Brain Power

When you provide loving, language-enriched experiences for your baby, you are giving his brain's neural connections and pathways more chances to become wired together. In turn, he will acquire rich language, reasoning, and planning skills.

At birth, your baby's brain contains 100 billion neurons (as many as there are stars in the Milky Way)! During his first years, he will grow trillions of brain-cell connections, called neural synapses. The rule for brain wiring is "use it… Continue

Brain Games - Does it really boost your mind?

Over the last few days there has been an interesting article about Brain Games, especially Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training on the Nintendo DS, where such a game "might not be as good for your brain as claimed" according to a French research.

Mommy Brain: It's All In My Head

Although the terms are often used jokingly, "mommy brain" and "pregnancy brain" are very real phenomena. Supposedly, hormones are to blame. Lots of women say they’re especially absent-minded or forgetful when they’re expecting, particularly in the first and third trimesters, and so do many of those who are caring for a new baby. My youngest is 17 months. Do I still qualify?

I sure hope so, because I’m not sure I have any other excuse for feeling like I’m starting to lose it… Continue

I have heard of a screw loose in the head but a screw loose in the diaper?

I had one of those, ‘Mommy idiot’ moments today. My two year old likes to act like he is a construction worker by sticking all of his wood and plastic play tools into pants. He walks around using the waistband of his pants as his tool belt. Smart kid I must say.

When I was brushing my teeth he came into the bathroom and asked, ‘mama where’s my tool?’ I turned around and saw him feel inside his pant leg. I leaned over and gave him a security… Continue

Mommy brain - Katherine Ellison wrote an entire book about it. Meanwhile, here I am trying to figure out how I misplaced my driver’s license, let along have time to read Ms. Ellison’s book. I tried to retrace my steps but my days are such a blur. My husband wants to know why the cereal is in the fridge and where the milk is. And where did I put those car keys?
