Is this pregnancy brain a real thing? How the hell do you mix up BBQ sauce and dish soap?
Yes Pregnancy brain is real, but I believe it's more for forgetfulness, weird reasoning and emotions. My sink with dishsoap is perpendicular and a few feet away from my fridge where I make my husband's lunch. I don't think I would have ever gone for a bottle of colourful (mines blue!) liquid over BBQ sauce in even my most 'frenzied pregnant, 3 year old at my leg asking for snackies' state. Unless my eyes were closed and I kept my soap in the fridge. I have no idea, and hardly believe this happened. At the very least, after squirting that stuff on, you'd be able to see the colour and redo it all! It does make for a funny story though!
pregnancy brain is real. and horrible. happens to me all the time at work when i am told to write a letter for a patient with all the information and then i have to go and awkwardly stand outside of the O.R. waiting for the patient to finish a surgery (we do feet so usually it's an ingrown nail removal) and i have to stand there asking nurses to see if anyone can remind me what the doctor told me some 2 minutes before. now.. the whole completely confusing dish soap with bbq? that's not what pregnancy brain is.
totally real. I'm not sure how the BBQ sauce dish soap mix up came about, but I've done some not so brilliant things while growing humans. with my youngest, I was 33 weeks along, completely exhausted because even when my then 1 year old would let me sleep i couldn't because I was so uncomfortable, and I went to wash the dishes. only the dish soap by the sink was empty I went to get more from the pantry. somehow I managed to grab corn syrup instead and it took me nearly an hour to figure out why my dishes weren't getting clean but instead getting sticky and gross.
I mean, he is a full grown adult who could make his own lunch...
I'm a stay at home mom and my husband works 10 hrs days, 6 days a week. I make his lunch every day and make sure his clothes are clean and laid out for him. He works hard so I don't have to, so I will gladly do those things for him. Sure he's capable, but so am I.
I kinda think this is bs. I had pretty bad pregnancy brain/ mommy brain but don't understand how you could even possibly mistakenly replace BBQ sauce with dish soap. Like do you keep your bottle of dish soap in the fridge or store your BBQ sauce beside/under the sink?
I imagined that OP took the bbq sauce out the fridge and put it on the kitchen bench which was close to the sink. So when OP went to grab it she grabbed the wrong one.
my worse was. teeing coffee without the grounds and melting a spatula on a burner I hadn't turned off. I really can't see how this mistake can be made unless the two are kept in close quarters.
