I always have the best of intentions to organize my family’s lives. To keep a baby book and actually mark down when the kids have doctors appointments and what the highlights of those milestone appointments were. Like I said….I always have the best of intentions, I didn’t say I remember to follow through. For some reason finding the actual baby book, turning to the page for “found a new tooth” and then finding a pen that works and writing it down. Well by the time I get to the writing it down part I have either forgotten what I was going to write or more than likely I start writing a food shopping list or needed to change a dirty diaper and, you guessed it, nothing gets written down!! I have two beautiful baby books, somewhere, blank….Mom Fail!
If you are anything like me then you have little business cards with doctors appointments written on them in the pockets of jeans, winter coats (bad if your appointment isn’t till summer!) and diaper bags. I put prescriptions for the kids on the passenger seat of my car thinking I will drop them off in the morning and then they end up under the seat till the next time I wash my car and I end up calling the nurse and telling her I flaked out and lost the script! At appointments I always say “Derek is allergic to…umm..hmmm…oh I can’t remember what it’s called, can you look it up”
I used to know birthdays. I knew phone numbers and I had addresses organized. Now I email all my friends and family before every holiday to get their addresses, AGAIN, because I can’t find any of them from the previous year! Every time I do it I feel like I am re-admitting to my unorganized ways. It almost makes me feel like people then know my house has clutter too because organized people have neat houses and well…I’m not organized!!
Well now I have discovered AboutOne. AboutOne is a an online organizer to manage all your information. I mean everything!!! No more wondering when Derek’s 4 year check up is or how much Hayley weighed at her 18 month visit. I can manage it all in one place ONLINE!! NO PEN REQUIRED!!! AboutOne is helping me keep my family organized. It’s letting me input and remember the cute little sayings that my 4-year old says and the constant milestones that my 20 month old keeps hitting.
AboutOne does not yet have an iPhone app yet it works great in Safari on my iPhone. Imagine being at the pediatrician and just plugging the appointment into your online organizer and everything you need will be store in one place, sounds great right? Well that’s what you can do with AboutOne
Now with About One I can:
- Store all my baby book items, with pictures, dates and details, in one place…for BOTH kids yet filter each item to the specific child
- Keep track of doctors appointments, vet appointments, playdates, birthday parties and even mark in the rare occasion I hire a baby sitter
- When I finally do hire that babysitter I can give her instructions through AboutOne
- I can keep inventory of items for our insurance claims
- One day when the kids are older I can print out their “Baby Books”
AboutOne is a place where Rob and I can access everything we need to about our family and kids. It is also a safe and secure, they use the same technology that banks and other financial institutions use to protect customer information.
