Since having children, which is just coming up for 5 years, I have noticed how bad my memory is!
It is not totally shot but enough that sometimes I will think about something, get up to make a list of the things and then only come up with 2 of the 3 things I was thinking about.
My long term memory seems fine, but the average day to day stuff can sometimes just slip right by without a blink.
Now to someone who can remember the most stupidist details and was always able to remember everything for the day, then this can get a little frustrating and annoying. Just another way that motherhood has affected my life that sometimes bugs me!
When Ben was first born I found that the way to solve this little problem was to have a notebook on the counter in the kitchen, and anything and everything got written down in it.
If I thought of something I had to do, then down it went, if I needed to write a number down, then that is where it went, when I was trying to organise things this is where I did my calculations.
Made life easy when you wanted to look back at something and be able to find it.
I have noticed that since we have been in Hamilton I haven't been using a notebook and things are getting forgotten and lost again.
So the notebook has come back out into the kitchen and hopefully things won't get forgotten or lost again!
