I stumbled across this blog post today… http://www.babble.com/toddler/toddler-development/toddler-memories-of-childhood/
DH and I often talk about this topic. How much does LO really remember? How much will she remember when she is older? Will she remember making banana cream pudding with me yesterday, the lemon jello we made and ate at a picnic in our backyard, the sugar cookies that got all stuck together when we put them on a plate to cool? Will she remember going to the park with daddy and me for the pony and train rides? How about the trip to the zoo and the aquarium? What about the time she and I went to the butterfly sanctuary or the day we picked strawberries and ate them from the fields?
The answer… maybe. But she will definitely remember the family time, the laughing, and the loving arms of mommy and daddy… She will know she means the world to us… and that’s enough for me.
