|My favorite grandgirls: Sarabeth (left), adopted; Madeline, natural.|
Sarabeth is the 16-year-old I sort of adopted a few months ago and Madeline, of course, is my son's daughter. Together, they form an amazing pair of young ladies I am proud know.
They seemed to like each other, too, despite the sizeable age difference (Maddie is 11), which is amplified at their age. They talked of hair color and pimples, ambitions and clothes, school and boyfriends, mac and cheese and salad and all the normal stuff. I mostly listened and enjoyed. Here's what some of it looked like.
