It is perfectly normal
Many mothers will attest to the fact that they make certain mistakes that others would find laughable. However, this is understandable because there are just too many things to remember, like play dates, school events, who likes to eat what, doctor’s appointments, favorite toys and, of course, favorite cartoon characters.
If you have been on this rollercoaster ride for a while and you feel like you are messing everything up because you don’t know how to get a grip, then you should know that scientists say it is perfectly normal.

According to a study carried out by Boston University and MIT, ‘mumnesia’ is a real medical phenomenon that happens to new moms due to four factors:
- Shifted priorities;
- The body’s getting over the pain of childbirth;
- Hormonal changes majorly caused by lactation;
- Fatigue from having so many things to do.
Do you see? You are not alone so relax. At least, you didn’t make this mistake this lady made.

An honest but hilarious mistake
Mom-to-be Lori Farrell took to Facebook a few days ago to share something to lighten everyone’s mood. Lori does not mind when the joke is on her as she revealed a hilarious blunder that she made. She wrote:
“If you feel like a failure today, just know that I wore a car seat cover a friend gave me because I thought it was a skirt.”
Explaining how the mistake happened, she told Scarymommy that a friend had gifted her with lots of baby stuff, she was expecting a girl.
Amusingly, Farrell found a black and white striped ‘clothing’ that she couldn’t make sense of so she assumed that it was a skirt. She noticed that the label was in the front but thought little of it.
When she got to work, she and a co-worker decided to Google the brand. Typing in ‘Itzy Ritzy,’ she was awash with embarrassment because the company does not manufacture any clothing and what she was wearing was a car seat cover!
Luckily, she saw the humor in it and so did the company as they shared it on their official Instagram page.
Other moms to the rescue
Many mothers found her predicament relatable as they added their experiences.
Well, the consensus is that it turned out to be a stylish mistake. Nevertheless, we must say, mothers indeed rock!
