Pigtails apparently doesn't remember any vacation or quality time offered up before age 6. So I was curious if I could flip this around and make her believe something that never happened.
"Pigtails, you remember that little Pony of yours we kept at Uncle Brian's house, right?"
She looked at the photo, then at me, then shook her head yes, then froze.
"Yeah, here you are riding her, we named her Rhonda, wasn't she fun?!"
Skeptical, she caught my grin, "Daddy, nuh-uh, we never had a horse."
I continue, "Whaaat, you don't remember Rhonda? I suppose you also forgot about the guinea pig. Tell me you remember the guinea pig."
She shakes her head side-to-side. She's not having it.
So every early family trip was in vain, she doesn't remember a thing. And she won't let fly the tall tales of ponies and guinea pigs. I got nothin'.
