Forgetful

Anyone else so forgetful? It’s so frustrating! I write stuff on my calendar to remember but then forget to look at it. I forgot my son had pyjama day at school Friday and he was so sad 😭. I have so much trouble staying organized at work too.

Time to enjoy life!

Hello ladies! I love how this particular board is for socially awkward moms! As I'm getting older, the anxiety has increased, and when I'm in front of someone new, I can say some pretty off the wall stuff!
