wrapped around her little fingers
I found this old picture in my archive. Although we had our backs to the camera, it is pretty obvious that the eldest daughter was saying something. And from our body language, you can say that both of us parents, were listening with rapt attention, as if in awe of someone saying something earth-shaking.
She's probably just talking to us about her friends in school, or the toys she would want for Christmas. But it was important enough to this girl to command our undivided attention and utmost concentration to what she was saying.
Such is the power of a child, and the oldies can only happily surrender.
