Mothers Are Smarter Than They Think!

Mommybrain?  Have you ever heard this excuse for things? 

Well, according to new research, that mommybrain of yours makes you smarter than your counterparts without children.

"In particular, the mothers who most enthusiastically rated their babies as special, beautiful, ideal, perfect and so on were significantly more likely to develop bigger mid-brains than the less awestruck mothers in key areas linked to maternal motivation, rewards and the regulation of emotions. The mothers averaged just over 33 years in age and 18 years of school. All were breastfeeding, nearly half had other children"

So go ahead and gush over your baby, and love him up!  It makes you and your baby smarter!
