She said it's happening

Soon after Elora arrived here Friday night she threw herself in a chair and announced,
"Well Grandma, it's happening. Boy drama!"

Eleven! She is only 11.
I need to respect her privacy, so I won't go into that, but...

After she left that night I thought back to a video of her from 6 years ago.  
She was only 5 years old! 
She was trying to figure out what wearing too much makeup will do to boys.

It's not very long…and she rambles at bit, 
so be patient because she comes right back to her subject.

I wish to always keep her this innocent. The year: 2008 so it looks a little vintage.

OH MY this is so darling! This is so fun you have this for her to look back on. It makes me want to make movies of my grandchildren right now so we can look back on them some day. They grow up so fast. I do have to say that Elora was very smart for a 5 year old!

I know what you mean Rebecca. I never thought about feeling nastolgic about my grandchildren but they are growing up and time is flying by just as it did with my children, only more so.

I remember this video clip and it made me smile again. Sometimes I long for the days when our granddaughters were that young again. What a cute memory this is and one that Elora will treasure.
