Ha! Sleep when you can. Maybe we should write a piece about how parents are basically military...

Def, for me caused by lack of sleep and adult conversations. Always forgetting names, words...
Mike Tantrum 
Which words did you forget? Wait, that's a rather mean question! But seriously, any words in particular that you struggled with?

I think one of the problems is that you aren't just planning for you (I rarely just go out on my own) - you are organising extra people as well....I have been known to get both our boys ready to go out, step outside the front door (into a covered passageway) and realise that I've forgotten my own shoes! Lol! As @Guest1217 says, sleep deprivation definitely has a big effect!

Yep. And the tiredness certainly makes it worse. I am useless after 8pm.

Just the next word in sentence I'm trying to make... could be something v simple
Emma J W 
Ha ha, I'm in bed now, if number 2 lets me I'll be asleep in 10mins

Goodnight all!

My fault for being so late!! I reckon it's the tiredness that kills the brain. Has there ever been a study on parents (probably mums for this one) on "baby brain", it's so often blamed in pregnancy.

DEFINITELY!!! It often feels like a permanent condition!
