Walk Like a…Mommy?

As I stumbled through Target’s parking lot the other day, I came to a rather rueful realization:

I can’t walk anymore.

By myself, that is.  I have no gait, no stride.  When left without a baby, a stroller, a hand to hold, a grocery cart, or a large bag…I don’t know what to do with myself.  I’ve got this hilarious hiccup-y, stutter-y walk.

I know Mommy Brain is supposed to disappear and Functional Brain is supposed to reappear by the time your youngest is 5 (oh, goodness, we want another baby…so let’s see, that gives me seven more years of Mommy Brain, yikes).  How many years before the Mommy Walk disappears?

  1. FOUR kids?? 🙂 You are a brave woman! I love how you put this idea into words. I totally feel self-conscious and weird whenever I’m alone. Definitely got the mommy-walk. I need a car-seat to carry and a hand to hold! Love my kiddos. =)
