|Zuzu, Thanks for posting that link. Are you having paralysis over opening the book? I think that I probably would. My one niece would have lots of great things to say about me and probably a few bad ones too. The other one would most likely blame me for a lot of her shortcomings as she does everyone else.
I am always amazed at how well my one niece handles so many of life's challenges and also get a bit tired of dealing with her frustrations. I'm sure that I'm probably the person she vents to the most, but sometimes it gets tiring absorbing it. We had a very good and long talk last night about life here in the US in today's age.
Here's an interesting article about the decline in verbal skills in the US. I thought that maybe it had to do with too much TV or the permissiveness of the hippie generation, but apparently not.
