Kids Can Aid Mom's Multi-Minding

I have discovered a new help for multi-minding moms -- lean on the memory capacity of your very able kids. With so much on my mind, I am always saying to one of my two kids, "remind me to..." and they always remember.

Today, before I shopped, I asked my four-year-old daughter to help me remember the items I wanted to get, which were out of the ordinary for the normal trip to the grocery store. Not only did she remember every one, but she also spotted them for me in the store.

While my mind seems is similar to a sieve, her little brain works on all cylinders. Thanks, Ellie! Your multi-minding mom appreciates your help.
