A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Rely on youngest to remember things

by Love_Daddy on April 11, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It's funny. My wife and I both tend to rely on our youngest daughter to remember things for us or for the family. And she is good at it. Asking the oldest to remember things is like asking the dog to watch your sandwich... She is just not skilled in that area, just like her daddy. I once stepped over something I had intentionally put on the stairs so I wouldn't forget it.
Thankfully, for our family, we have our youngest brain picking up the slack for everyone else.

Love Daddy
