forgetting everything for myself

May 14, 2007 1:13pm CST
when my daughter and i go out i make sure i have everything she will need, and extra. then i go out the door and either half way when i get to our destination or even when i get there i realized i forgot all my stuff. i forget my coat or whatever else i need. does this happen to you, you worry about what your kids will need but then forget to all about yourself.

Please, my daughter is sixteen and I can not blame things on her. I take my mom and go coupon shopping. It never fails I leave the house and go get my mom and go to the store. We get in the store and I realize that I left a discount coupon on the printer at home. I leave my mom at the store and run home and get the coupon. Did not save much money that day. I have also loaded up my car to go shopping and forgotten my drink. I have asthma and I drink all the time. This means another trip home. Believe me I can totally understand. When my daughter was younger I had extra stuff. This means there was always a bag backed to go. I love coupons and sales. I have an overnight bag that is packed for me even today. It has deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, shave gel, contact solution, extra contact case, and a few other things. I have to keep things on hand because I am so forgetfull.

Only all the time. I mean I forget my sunglasses, my cell phone, even my wallet one time. I finally bought a bag to keep her stuff in as well as mine so for teh most part it is already packed before we go. So not I usually only forget the movie to take back to blockbuster or my bottle of water.

I do that all the time!! I get my son's diaper bag ready, jackets for everyone, drinks for the kids, books to read, etc....then realize I didn't get myself a jacket even if it is reining outside, or I will leave my drink on the kitchen counter even if it ws my breakfast or lunch. I do it too often to count...I don't even get mad about it anymore =) I think it is part of being a Mommy!!
