I read another one of those "Stay at home Mums are wasting their brains" articles (why why WHY do I click on them??). The idea that using your brain in a non-academic way is somehow letting it rot away is insulting. I keep lots of info in my brain that, while not PHD material, it's still important to my day to day.
-I know that all my kids birthdays, birth weights, time of birth and day of the week they were born on.
-When I make a salad Tannah likes snow peas, baby spinach, carrot and cucumber. Willow eats snow peas and carrots and Harper eats cucumber, carrot and snow peas. Tans is the only one who likes feta and Harper hates cheese.
-When the kids play Yo Gabba Gabba Willow is Toodee, Tannah if Foofa and Harper gets to be "baby Plex". I'm Muno-they make me be the big red dildo.
-I know how long to cook a roast on based on weight
-I know the invented names of a whole heap of the kids stuffed toys. And they may be subject to change.
-I can remember shopping lists in my head and know what is in my freezer when I'm at the supermarket.
-I can recite whole parts of Toy Story 2 and know all the words the entire Justine Clarke albums.
-I know how to negotiate with fighting children and deal with extreme demands.
I'm sure there is lots of other "useless" Mother Things I Know out there. Anyone feel like sharing?
