Inspired by the fact that someone was baffled at my not caring to memorize my son's exact birth weight. That's just it, I don't. I don't think it's that important. I have it written down somewhere and my brain never registered it as something it should remember.

I'm his mom. I know how he thinks, what he likes and hates, what makes him tick and what makes him sad. I do not, however, care to remember his exact weight at birth, nor do I feel like that's something I should be able to list off the top of my head. Not saying it's a bad thing by any means if you do know your child's birth weight, just that I don't see the importance.

Both my kids were 21 inches long. My dd was 10.4lbs and my son was 8.14lbs. I don't remember the time they were born though, which in my family is kind of a big deal.

I know both of them, just like my mom knows her kids, and my grandmothers know their kids birth weights and lengths.

Now Dh's mom doesn't know any of her kids weight, lengths or time of birth. Nothing wrong with that.
