There’s something about having kids around that just sucks the brain power right out of a sharp-minded, well-spoken adult. I usually have a mind like a steel trap – remembering details about my childhood or events that happened long ago. But driving to preschool with the kids in the back seat means that I even forgot what a green light means.
It’s safe to say that I (along with other brain-drained parents) could use some serious memory building. Brain Training Games is an app to do just that, but it’s not just limited to grown brains.
