My daughter is retaining much more than she used to and seems able to communicate these things back to me.  I realized this last night when I asked her what she had for dinner at her father’s house.  First she told me “nothing” to which I responded that I knew she ate something.  She then said “mashed potatoes, beans, corn, and meat.”  She was clear as a bell on this and I was surprised, I thought maybe she was making this up.  So I looked at her father and he nodded and said, “yes, she ate all those things!”
