Brain Drain

So why is it...
that I can be so blessed as to get 23,492 awesomely inspired creative tidbits poping into my head while I'm carrying the baby at 3am, but when I finally get a chance to get to a computer and write them down.... *poof* they're gone forever!

very frustrating

I keep a notebook, as in paper and pencil, near me. Of course, that requires having at least one hand available to write.

Use your mp3 player to record your thoughts.

In the meantime, I prefer to think those lost ideas just went into percolate mode, and they'll surface again, improved with age.

The reason why you come up with all those ideas while holding the child is because those are HIS ideas. You're feeling them through osmosis. When you let him go, the thoughts stay with him. I think you have 2 options: #1 do as bego says and record it, but with the intention of not letting poor Antonio's thoughts go to waste. Keep them recorded and give them back to him when he understands his thoughts. #2 let his thoughts be... let him put them to good use when he's good and ready. With so many thoughts at such a young age he's bound to be a great doodler!!
