Memory Like An Elephant

We have a new ritual in our family. At dinner each night - or as often as we manage to have dinner together - we ask each other two questions: How was your day today? and What's one good thing that happened to you?

Saturday night we hit up Matt's El Rancho for Mexican food with Ana's two cousins, Grant and Lauren. On our way home I thought I'd try the questions on Ana knowing that she'd had a good day - the circus, her cousins, eating out.

How was your day today, Ana?


What's one good thing that happened to you today?

I liked eating out with you people.

I was touched by the extra effort she expended to remember our names.
