When I grow up....

As we were going for a late evening walk, looking for fireflies, ds looked at me and suddenly asked, Mommy, when I am big, will I remember being little?  It really struck me, as he was nearly sad in his questioning.  He found a little pebble, and asked me to keep it, so he could remember being little.
