Last week while my husband was traveling I took my son out on a date (which means he got to pick dinner and then we went out for dessert). As I was answering his questions over ice cream, he asked me about nitrogen (because that is what five-year-olds are into these days). I went into my purse to get out my phone to look up more information, but realized it wasn't there.

I wasn't worried about people not being able to get in touch with me, or about missing out on something else. I wasn't even bummed out about not being able to take a picture of him. I was just focused on having fun with my son.

Let me know how it goes in the comments.

I will admit it's a lot different when you accidentally leave it at home versus just forgetting it, but good luck to you!

I am definitely going to try this! I feel like sometimes I'm looking at my phone a lot when I'm supposed to be spending time with my children and I loose focus of what they are doing.
