couple on dateMy husband and I were reminiscing about a date we had gone on prior to having children. Our son asked if he had enjoyed the date experience, too. After explaining that he hadn’t gone because he wasn’t born yet, he asked, “Oh, was I sad about that?”

visiting newborn at hospitalFollowing the birth of my first child, I was self-conscious about being photographed while in the hospital. So when my daughter was looking at photos of all the relatives who visited her in the hospital and didn’t see one of me, she asked, “Mommy, did you come to the hospital to see me when I was born?”
