I have a Mommy brain - energized and efficient, socially engaged and mentally alert. Years of nurturing, relentless acts of multitasking and emotional demands, combined with powerful hormonal stimulation and a flood of sensory experience has literally reshaped my brain, making it a much more complex organ.
Motherhood provides the brain with some distinct metal advantages in perception, efficiency, resilience, motivation, and emotional intelligence. Epiphanies manifest at lightening speed when you're actively shaping the mental, emotional, and physical life of another human being while simultaneously evaluating your own.
With that being said, I just love these pictures!
