I recently visited my daughter Elizabeth in Maryland who just had my grand baby #6 - Sophia Rose. While I was there I sat down with Ella, my oldest grandchild and the only other granddaughter I have, for a lengthy, enlightening, and fun conversation.
Ella becomes open and expressive when I give her time and attention like this.
I did the same thing several years ago with much the same results: an amazing conversation.
The sameness and the differences that just a few years make are so interesting!
