Write it on my hand

No, I'm not trying to punch you

No, I'm not trying to punch you. Not today.

I’ve done it forever. When I need to remember something important, today, immediately, I write it on my hand.  I’ve done it forever.  I still do it.  Today there are 3 items on my hand list:

  1. Superior 253 Y – My dad took me out for lunch today, to the Superior Restaurant at 253 Yonge Street, across from the Eaton Centre. It was good.
  2. Photos for UK – My parents are going to England in August; Mark is going with Callum in September.  I need to print some photos to give to relatives, which I never get around to, and I need to send some photos we had taken of Callum at a studio recently.
  3. baby bjorn – Friends are imminently going to have their first child, and have been quizzing me about various baby items.  They already bought a carrier, but wanted to try out the Baby Bjorn.  I wouldn’t say it’s the greatest thing ever – but I’d rather they tried it out before they spent more money.  So I’ll lend ours.

I can’t be the only one that does this, right? Ah, the power of Google – look at this!  Someone buy it for me for my birthday!!!  (I’d put it on the outside of my hand, though)

The kids get weirded out by my written-on hand.  But with so many less brain cells than I used to have (I can blame that on having kids, not on anything fun like drugs), I need my hand-written hand.

    I’m not a handwriter, no. Or, a writer-on-hand. That’s definitely a QUIRK, girl! BIZARRO! Love it!

    Hoorah – it’s not just me trying to work out the hieroglyphics at the end of a day with too many hand-washes!

    I write on my hand all the time too, and then my hooligans give me trouble for writing on myself!

    Tell your friends a ring sling or a wrap for when baby is wee, and ergo for when bigger. I still use my ergo and T is 2 1/2. Baby Bjorn not so good for baby’s spine. 😉

      Yeah, I did explain that as I had a fabric sling too – but they want to try it out. I will reinforce the message. They bought another carrier but don’t like it. You are a better woman than me, lugging your 2.5 year old around. I’m evil, Callum has to walk 🙂

        HAHAHAHAAAA!! See, I’m too lazy to haul along a big ole stroller. Funny really, what qualifies as lazy for one parent… and not for another. Oh, I suppose MY trick is that Ja usually carries Talya around. snicker. Now THAT is the way to do it.

    Well, it’s better than my current method of simply not remembering anything.

    I use the back of my hand. Means I can’t miss stuff.
