Unsentimental Siskel & Ebert

During family movie night, watching "Fly Away Home" (wherein the lead character, played by a preteen Anna Paquin, doesn't remember details from her toddler days)...

Double Daddy: "When you guys are 12, do you think you will remember things from when you were three?"

Sarah (without hesitation): "Of course not!"

Darren (without reservation): "Why would we?"

Whew. Maybe all those parenting mistakes I was so confident would scar them for life will be of minimal impact after all...

LOL! How funny and good to know. (although, I will tell you that my teenage children seem to CLEARLY remember those "mean moments" I'd love to forget. UGH)

"Why would we?" Great!

There have been so many times that I have said or did something and turned to Husband to say, "they won't remember that, right?" Ahhhh...thank God!
