Kids Help Multi-Minding Moms and Learne at Same Time

This just in from my sister re my post last week "Kids Can Aid Multi-Minding Moms." My sister has an even better idea. Not only do you ask the kids, whose brains are much more highly functioning than mine, to remember items you need to get at the store, you also have them write a list. That way, you remember and your kiddie practices writing letters and words.

Great idea that serves two purposes. Busy, multi-minding women love that.

Only problem for me is... all of my lists end up sitting on the kitchen counter b/c I forget to take them with me. Guess I need to ask Ellie to remind me to take the list, too!

Your sister is so right! My son can be a living, breathing shopping list. Or at least he'll remind me about what I need after we've returned from a trip. When I've inevitably forgotten something.

But can we pause and talk about batteries for a minute? They're my nemesis, the absolute death of me. Sure they make toys vroom and zoom and do all sorts of cool things, but every time I turn around, something needs a new battery. And why is it that every toy -- even toys you wouldn't think need batteries -- require them? And a screwdriver. Sure I own a Costco-sized box, but I'm forever buying them. Or at least thinking about buying them. I need Ed McMahon to show up on my front lawn with a life-time supply.

No wonder it's so difficult to get things done, I'm always replacing batteries!
