Bad memory or just creative problem solving

I have a young friend who has a two-year old son and is just about to give birth to twin boys.  OH MY!  There lives are about to change dramatically but how exciting for them!  I've been thinking about her so much and remembering my days with newborn twins.  I can't imagine having a two year old to boot though. 

Looking back got me to thinking that my memory didn't just get bad when I got older....it always sucked!

When my girls were little I sent them off to a dance recital but forgot to put their panties on them. 

I left one of them at the doctor's office.  But in my defense the other one made enough noise for two.  I didn't notice her sister wasn't with us until we got home.

I don't know if my memory was bad or I just had mom fog!

So, how do I explain it now or what do I blame it on?  I'm 63 years old and I keep leaving the remote control in the refrigerator.  I'm either spending a lot of time foraging for food or I'm just looking for a safe place to put the darn thing or better yet, I'm just hiding it from my husband so he won't change the channel while I'm gone.

My favorite one was forgetting to put panties on the girls for their dance recital.

I never remember where I placed my car keys. It seems they are always in a different place. Of course they should be in my pocketbook, but that is too easy and obvious, I guess.

My neighbor gave birth to triplet boys this spring.. Add to that the 3 boys she already had. Can't imagine.

I keep trying to change channels with my cordless phone. It makes for a lot of eye rolling from my son.

My favorite is to walk into a room and wonder what am I doing there. Think it is God's way of making sure we seniors get our exercise making us wander about.
