Betty (almost 8), out of the blue: "Mommy, did you finish all the books we gave you for Christmas last year?"
Me: "Um ... I read some of them."
Betty: "Did you read Undercover yet?"
Me, stunned that Betty would remember - nearly a year later - that she bought me Beth Kephart's Undercover last Christmas. (With The Dean's help, of course.)
Me: "How did you remember that?"
Betty: "I remember the cover. It was my favorite book that I bought you."
