Monday afternoon. 4:45 pm. I'm getting dinner. Kristoffer is on his way home. Grace and Noah are playing with Rose in the living room. This is what I hear from the kitchen.
Grace: Here, Noah. This is a toy for you. Do you want to play with it?
Grace: I'm asking, do you want to play with this toy?
Grace: Noah, you have to say "yes" or "no".
Grace: Or do you want me to play with it?
Grace: I'll count to five. One - Two - Three - Four - Five. Okay, I think this toy is for me.
Rose: Grace, what happens when Noah can talk?
Grace: --- --- --- I think he can want to share his toys with me.
I can't even tell you how much I look forward to hearing more conversations between these two. Especially, when they aren't so one-sided!
