When will my mommy brain go away?
I constantly have mommy brain. I realize, I am responsible for a lot, but I still forget so much.
Ever week, I struggle with remembering to clean the girls blankets and sheets to bring back to daycare. And then, once I clean them, I often leave them at home, or even in the car.
And, when I was pregnant with #2, I totally forgot to schedule #1’s two year check up, with my impending child birthing and all. Thankfully, they were able to squeeze us in at the last minute, saving us a well-child check up co-pay.
What could help me with all of this? A Smart Phone, of course. We have Verizon and we are always quite pleased with the service. I’m always tempted to upgrade to a smart phone plan, but then I see the price tag and I decide against it. The phones aren’t that much more expensive, but it would run me an additional $20 a month for the plan. I love the idea of having everything right there at my finger tips, but with the Dave Ramsey plan and all, it isn’t in the budget.
So, for now, my dreams of having a smart phone and it remembering all of these appointments are on the backburner. Until then, I write it all down in my handy paper and pen planner. Which works as often as my brain…or when I remember to write things down.
Verizon and JuiceBoxJungle sponsored this post, and they asked me to talk about the ways my smart phone could change my life as a parent.
I am going to state the obvious – Verizon should have given you a smart phone with, you know, 6 or 12 months of service to see how much they would really help your "mommy brain"!!! OH and that reminds me – I need to put Maggie's sheet and blanket in the car for tomorrow!!
You can get around that extra $20! I get my smartphone from ebay and activate it online. No need to upgrade to the data plan. I have the Palm Centro and love it! I can add events on my phone or on my computer. No data plan needed!
I can call it mommy brain? My kids call it senility!
i think it never goes away friend. ever. in fact i hear it only gets worse.
although pretty sure if verizon wanted to give you a handy dandy smart phone you would at least feel less forgetful 🙂
I need one of those. My phone's up for upgrade in August and I am eyeing a Droid, so badly.
