My husband has been telling me for a while now that my brain has changed since the baby was born. I think I really did lose some brain cells during my labor and delivery (or maybe from all of those sleepless nights?) because I can’t seem to remember anything from one minute to the next. If I don’t write down what I am thinking in a prominent place then it probably won’t be remembered. I can only imagine how difficult it will be for me when I have to add in school activities on my “to-do list” (school is still on my mind with all of the children in our area going back this week).
To help combat my memory struggles I have been using an adorable Mommy Memo “Board” which is not really a board but a wall sticker. I thought it was the cutest thing and just had to tell everybody about it. It is a big ladybug chalkboard that you can stick on most surfaces and even peel off then re-stick to another surface if you want. I have it in my baby’s nursery right now so I can use it to write down her appointments or shopping list if I notice she is low on diapers. Sometimes I will quickly jot down a blog post idea too, if inspiration strikes while I am changing my baby’s diaper.
I found this chalkboard wall sticker on the Bright Star Kids website and thought it would be great to use as a memo board and when my baby is older she can enjoy using it too. (They also have cute nursery wall sticker art along with other wall stickers that I thought would look good throughout my house.) If you are looking for a good “Mommy Memo Board” like I needed, I would highly recommend that you at least check out the Bright Star Kids website first.
I was so excited when the package arrived (about a week after it was ordered, which is great for shipping from Australia to the U.S.) and couldn’t wait to try it out. It was easy to “assemble” and I knew exactly where I wanted to put it- as seen in my previous picture. But, if you do want to change where you put it, they are easy to remove and re-stick because of the nice fabric texture.
By the way, if you happen to be artistically challenged and need help putting your wall art stickers up, they have a YouTube channel with plenty of “how to” videos to give you inspiration. (They also have a Facebook Fan Page if you want to keep up with their special offers and new products; or keep up with the conversation by following them on Twitter.)
I admitted to having Mommy Brain and I am taking steps to correct this problem. How about you? Do you have a problem with your brain being missing?
