Have you noticed that your house has changed from from “everything in its place” to “where did all this stuff come from?” Does the phrase “go clean your room” meet with a look of confused silence? Have you ever suffered a painful injury from stepping on Legos or other small toy parts?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are probably a parent. Whether or not you were organizationally challenged before welcoming a blessed little one (or two) into your space, no doubt their addition has changed the look and feel of your once-calm home. It’s true: babies and kids come with lots of extra “stuff.”  Your challenge is to tame the stuff and regain control over your space. The tips below may bring you back some sanity:

Memory for Mommies has developed a Mommy Memory survey to help mothers gain insight into key elements that impact memory and brain health. The 31 question survey incorporates many of the elements that are considered to impact memory and brain health. Those areas include Physical, Organizational, Technical, and Mental Emotional components.This is an updated version of the original Mommy Memory survey that was administered in 2007. This survey should take you less than 15 minutes to complete.

Once you've taken the survey, you'll get access to key metrics from the 2007 survey and be notified when we release the data from the new survey.
