How my work review should really go…

Sep 12, 2014 by

It is that time again ladies! It is mid year review time. I personally have never been a huge fan of reviews. I understand why we have them and why they are important but nonetheless I get weirded out by flashing my accomplishments and of course my shortcomings on paper to talk about over and over again.

As I was working on my current one, I realized that the review itself does not really depict my whole self and how HARD I really work, especially as a working mother.  I keep my whole review one sided, never bringing in the struggles that I battle at home on a daily basis.

So when I state that I closed a huge deal with a client I should have added that I did it on the last day before my due date, extremely fucking pregnant and miserable. I was able to pull this deal through with hips that felt like they were cracking and a bladder the size of a peanut. I did not waiver in my loyalty to work even though I hadn’t seen my toes in months.

I’m ALIVE….

Can I tell you ladies why I am so freaking happy right now that I could scream?! I am literally beaming from ear to ear.

Take a guess?

Did I win the Lottery?

NOPE

Did I get a promotion at work?

NOPE

Did I suddenly lose 20 pounds by eating ice cream?

I WISH!

No ladies the biggest accomplishment for a mother with a baby occurred in the last week.

MY DAUGHTER IS SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!

This is the moment that angels sung and a world celebration started to begin.

HAPPY DANCE for this lady!

HAPPY DANCE for this lady!

Mommy Mush Brain

Before kids I was the most organized, put together, type A person you could meet. I was the organizer of social calenders, always early on work projects and never missed a deadline.

Fast forward to today.

I CAN”T REMEMBER ANYTHING!

I have dubbed this condition “Mommy Mush Brain

I have literally forgotten a simple thought two seconds after having it. I have done the classic go to get something from another room and forget what said thing is when I get there.

I have forgotten weekend plans, then see the reminder pop up on my phone an hour before and scramble to get the kids, and a gift for the party.

I have forgotten to tuck my boob back into my bra…as any normal person knows flashing is unacceptable. I would like to apologize to my neighbors.

Is Will Smith causing my memory loss?
