What Generation Gap.............

Our granddaughter is staying with us for her last week of Summer vacation.... you know, Wonka Land as her parents like to call it....Or the land that knows no No's....
Tonight the princess decided to take a leisurely bubble bath and I being her loyal servant obliged her.........
When she stepped into the tub she asked, "Gram, would you play one of those funny records you like to listen to while I'm in here".......I couldn't believe what I was hearing, someone who bops around the house singing Justin Bieber and The Jonas Brothers and shakes her tiny behind to Lady Gaga, was wanting to listen to Ella Fitzgerald.....Her Grammie's old Jazz tunes
I stood and watched as she lay in a bubble filled tub with her eyes closed and her head laid back, Lady Ella's magic spell was cast
It was beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I'll introduce her to a little Nina Simone the next bubble bath........

It is so much fun when our kids and even grand kids start to "really" understand us. ;)
