For some reason my daughter just shrugs and says she can't remember. And she's six. I can't imagine years into the future. And so, instead of allowing this to be the beginning of growing gap between my child and I, that is the adventures she has that I know nothing of, I thought of another question to ask her.
"Ellie, tell me something you remember."
And boy the adventures she takes me on. I even extended the question to Matthew and wonderment ensued as well. They'd tell me of things I've forgotten, of small moments, of big adventures.
