Years ago I could meet someone and repeat their name once and remember it. Now I can meet someone 20 times, have no clue what their name is but can usually match them up to the corresponding kid.
When we lose the list, there's no hope. If it's a grocery list, I end up getting most of the stuff I'd written on the list -- except for the MAIN thing I needed at the store.
I'm telling you, this craziness comes from having a bunch of kids.
