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?
