Sooo, you had kids, great! Now, is your memory GONE?

I can't remember a damn thing, I have to make lists. It's making me crazy and a tad worried!

  • your brain shrinks when you have kids...seriously lol. I have to have one of those whistler things for my keys...lists do me no good because i manage to lose them and you have no idea how many credit cards i have had replaced this year alone not to mention my drivers license.
    I once found the remote control in the freezer. which i have caught myself doing on a number of occasions so i am pretty sure it was me.

    I think i will end up with altzheimers when I get old.

  • LOL..... welcome to motherhood! Thank goodness we have children to show for it, cause one day they will remember everything for you! LOL My 5 year old daughter has the best memory! She can find ANYTHING, remember ANYTHING, or whatever!!! She is my brain.... I just tell her, where Im putting things, what we need at the store... or what we have going on... sometimes I dont even have to tell her anything and she still knows!!! LOL She is VERY observant!!!
    Maybe when we have babies they take out our brains and give them to our children!!! LOL It makes sense on my end!!! LOL
