It was the eldest who told me about my inability to remember the stories I told them. Said there was one about cars that they always wanted to re-hear, but I couldn't remember it. I have no recollection of any story about cars.

Any parent will understand that so much blather goes on as you are trying to entertain, teach your kids - and not all of it is terribly intellectually stimulating, that it is hard to keep track of all you say.
I used to be disgusted.
Now I try to be amused.
