I’ve always loved favourites.

Daniel and I play this game a lot, asking each other favourites. Asking our friends their favourites, asking our friends kids their favourites. It’s lighthearted, it’s fun, it’s something we would have done with her, with our daughter, with Quinn.
Now, we imagine her favourites. I think we do a pretty good job.
What’s her favourite colour? Purple.
What’s her favourite thing to do? Giggle.
What’s her favourite song? The Girl, by City in Colour.
It’s our “family thing”. You know. You have a family thing too.
Today, I ask you, what’s your favourite thing about Quinn? Tell me what you remember. Tell me what you loved about her. Even if you never got to see her sweet face, if you know me, you knew her while she was growing inside of me. You got glimpses of her too. What was your favourite?
