You can call it being easily distracted, having difficulty focusing or following through... some call it ADD.
It is not having a short attention span. It's having a short attention span to boring things. Other times, I hyper focus, we call this "the zone".
Being a mommy with "the gift" has plenty of strengths (energy, creativity, flexibility, multi-tasking, sense of humor, to name a few); but it sure can make it tough to get stuff done around here! I'm great with big, random, fun projects, but daily dinner???!!! Not so much. Grocery shopping with both kids???!!! I can easily end up with a cart of stuff and nothing for dinner. Enter my newest project: a daily docket.
I compiled several resources and made a few of my own and now I have an AWESOME daily help. Here's some other good printables.
Here's what I'm working with:
* simple mom's pocket docket pages. A gajillion copies of this, printed on both sides. I love the "what's for dinner?" space at the top.
* monthly calendar I found here.
* personalized grocery checklist. This is so very helpful to me. I can email if you want.
* weekly menu plan. We have 3 set meals a week and the rest is up in the air. Monday is spagetti, Thursday is rice & beans, and Friday is pizza. This is great help for our budget, my sanity, and grocery shopping because I always have all the ingredients for these 3 meals on hand.
Anyway, when I took the stuff to get copies made I made an extra set if anyone wants one. You can print your own; but if you want it; just let me know. You can email me or just leave a comment.
