Frazzled mom moment #56940396: Knowing the days and times of work meetings months ahead of time, renewing our health insurance for the family by the deadline, keeping track of Lenny’s schedule to transition into the toddler room at daycare, and maintaining a mental calendar of all family birthdays, parties and get-togethers…yet forgetting to write my blog post on time (the one thing on my calendar just for me).
