36. Yeah I raised two and I never forgot either of them
And I am a space cadet. I lose my keys regularly. Two weeks ago I left my purse in a restaurant, last weekend I left my coat in a dressing room at a dept store.

But I never once left or lost either of my kids anywhere. So if I can keep track of babies, anyone can :)
