Remembering He’s Forgotten

This morning as I was getting Gpa dressed, I had to tell him several times to take off his shoes.  I got frustrated and said, “We do this every single day.”

Then I remembered, he doesn’t necessarily know that.

If I could remember that he doesn’t remember, I’d be less frustrated.  That’s the trick.  I feel like I say everything over and over and at some point it should stick with him.  But there isn’t a place in his brain for it to stick.

Even though I’ve said it over and over, he’s hearing it for the first time.

And just like I ask him why doesn’t he remember what I’ve said, why don’t I remember that he doesn’t?  Why doesn’t that fact stick in my brain?
