One thing that has become more noticeable to me since becoming a mom is that I’m always trying to remember things. Remember to buy milk and diapers. Remember baths, shoes, and brushing teeth. Remember nap times, school times, play dates, birthdays. Remember my keys, my credit card, my name.
Most days I forget most things, I think. I find myself running back into the house two, three, maybe even four times to grab one more thing that I forgot. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and my heart races as I remember something from the day before – too late. Or I think of something that I MUST still remember when I wake up tomorrow.
No adjustment to my system operation will compensate though. Because I’ve decided that the brain can only store so much information at any given time – and mine is mostly dedicated to remembering moments. You know the ones I’m talking about, the moments that *count*!
Like the way her eyes lit up when she saw her FLOWER cupcakes just as her party guests started to arrive.
