True introversion - not being overly shy, but needing to be alone to get energy, and thinking things through (usually a lot) before actually being willing to say anything. That's why what I think is much more than what I actually say.
"When I was pregnant with my girl, there was a tv ad about a little girl and her real life elephant. Made me cry every time. My girl has loved elephants since she was little. Maybe, since before she was born. :)" <<<that's so cute
