Being Forgetful

I am a mom of three wonderful children and I have been married for almost 17 years. This year we went to Disney world for our family vacation. We had a wonderful time. I did not forget to pack anything, which is what I usually do when we go anywhere. We had to go somewhere else about a week after that just for a day and I forgot a bunch of stuff. I have tried writing things down and a few other things,but nothing seems to work. I get so upset with myself sometimes. I just don't know what to do. Anyone have any suggestions?

My children are my world,my life. I love my husband too, though, I guess that is why I do not want to disappoint him. I just screw up so much. He gets mad when I am late or when I forget things. I just get upset. I don't know. Its so hard. Thank you for responding. It does sound like you are in the same situation. Good luck with it. I hope everything turns out good for you.

I just feel like I am not a good mother when I do stupid stuff like this. I feel like I am not worthy of being a mother or even a wife. I just feel like they would be better off without me.

Trust me, if you're merely forgetful sometimes, and he is arrogant about your faults and his perfection, the kids need you more than him. I know it from (unfortunately) hard experience.

I do the same thing.
