This house.  
My mother is attempting to give family physicals in my living room. Like she usually does. I'm working on my issues with her.

Charlie is doing really well with his new job. We are slowly starting to get comfortable in this house. Tricia has been going to her room to play and not pulling me along to follow her. Which is good. She's finally starting to go to my parents. It isn't that she doesn't love them, she just doesn't know them very well. Not as well as she should for a grandchild.

I was close to my grandparents. My father was always weary when we'd go visit his father. I don't really know why because my Dad doesn't talk much about when he was a kid, but my grandfather was great. He bought us ice cream all the time. My grandmother was always quiet, yet loving. I can see where my Dad gets it from. My mother's parents were always on the go. Cruise here, church things there. They were great people and very loving as well. They had always taken Ellie with them a lot. Not only was she Mom's favorite, she was theirs too. I'm not bitter about it, it's just the truth. Liz was always busy with her friends and then her kids. So, it was kind of only me with my parents when they were home or with the lady who watched us.

I'm just glad that it will be different for my daughter.

I am totally not the favorite. You're the favorite.

Abbey Bartlet has no favorites. She hates you all equally.

I love all of you the same but in different ways.

I have to agree, Mom, that was pretty lame.
