Do you have grandchildren in another state, as I do? Do you have grandchildren nearby, as I do? Do you visit them on the phone more often than you see them in person, as I do? Especially these days?
Do you find the conversations sometimes lagging when you can’t think of something to say? Or do you just ask the same questions every time?
