Mommy Brain: How Motherhood Makes Us Smarter by Katherine Ellison

I will now interrupt the binge watching of season 1 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to read this book! (doesn't that show make you want to be a stand-up comedienne?!?)

I just had a baby so I LOVE that my dear friend Abby brought me this book to read. I am the FIRST person to blame fuzzy memory and finding random things in my fridge due to what many have dubbed "Mommy Brain." Buuuuut, I am learning that there is definitley more to this mommy brain stuff. It is so much more interesting and positive than any of us ever suspected. 

If you have "mommy brain" or live with someone who does, I totally recommend this book. It's full of scientific data and research that backs up the hypothesis that motherhood does not leave us with many deficits. It actually makes us smarter!
