Write things down before you forget them. We're not just talking about adding eggs to the grocery list (though obviously that's smart too).
This was the inspiration for a blog post a while back, Peanut Butter in the Air Vent https://www.momcavetv.com/peanut-butter-in-the-air-vent/?amp=1&fbclid=IwAR3QX3vQUGyUa7rwKFUbCrWEndxfkafYTyEDXux2hVRqF61z6Es8amZUI7I
but it bears repeating.
Lots of people have baby books that give you a place to record height and weight at checkups, immunizations, first word, and that sort of thing.
That’s a good start to “write things down” – but it is limited to dry details and common items that are universal to all children.
But what about the rest? The silly mispronunciations (my husband and I still refer to one of the planets as “Saturin”) and the strange way they sometimes looked at the world. What was baby’s first joke?
Perhaps because I only had one, I remember a fair number of silly things, but I know there are many others that are gone forever.
You can’t get them back unless you build a time machine. Until then, writing things down is as close to a time machine as we’ve got.
If you have a time machine, PLEASE let us know. If you don't, and just want or need to talk to a caring ear, remember to make an appointment at https://www.hearingoutlifedrama.com/book-online
