Day 29: New Family Stories



To continue the conversation about family stories, I wanted to talk a little about creating new family stories.  What are your kids going to remember?  Do you tell them your own stories?  I do.  My daughter's favourite story for me to tell her is the one about being 3 feet away from a bear in the middle-of-nowhere woods near Nordegg.  True story.

I've also read her the little story I wrote about getting lost in the wheat field with my cousin.  And she's always asking about my experiences when I was a kid.  I hope she and her brother will take the stories that mean the most to them, and pass them on to their kids.  And I plan to tell my stories and my grandparents' stories to my grandkids too.

What stories do you want to pass on?

  1. We talked about camping trips, relatives in other countries and wrestling with my sisters. So important for our children to see their parents as children too, I think.

    1. I totally agree, Heather. I've even been honest with my kids about the bad stuff I've done.
