Read it on my hand

We have lots of markers in our house but not as many papers lying around, so I often turn to my hand when I need to write something down. The hand actually makes a perfect reminder, I see it all the time and I can´t loose it (like I always do with small notes).

But when it ´s super duper important (a matter of life and death-type of thing) I also X my foot.  It´s the first thing I see in the morning, so it can´t go wrong.

When John Waters (book-Role Models) recommends a movie or a “single-named” bombshell I write it on my hand.

Hey Isabelle,
I teach children, who have a learning handicap.
So they often “forget” to look in their homework booklet and aren’t able to do their homework ;-), they forget important things (like glue, pencils, books… ) or to give a letter from me to their mum.
Since I write or draw very important things on their hands they really improve!
Now they often say “Uppps, forgot! But no problem: I write it on my hand and tomorrow everything will be allright!” I LOVE IT!
So you see: your idea works… hihi, but I won’t try to put notes on their feet…

Thanks for your lovely blogg!

Hello Anja!

Thank you for sharing. Lovely story.
My son Frank ‘s right hand is not as mobile as it should be, his doctors tell us to “remind” him of his hand and involve it in his playing. So Jens ( my hubby) usually doodles on franks hand. A car. A flower and so on. Then we say, “where’s your car Frank?” or “smell the flower”
It s just an easy Way of making him notice it.

I do that to.
but then the next morning I wake up with the reminder on my cheek or my neck, or both.
despite this I still think its a good way!

Jag brukar ofta sms:a kom ihåg-saker till mig själv!
