But now the tide has shifted. It’s been fun as a mom to see how delighted my kids are to hang out with their cousins. My daughter just loves ‘her girls’ and can hardly wait for the chances we get to see them. They’re a bit older than she is but as soon as she could run, she has done a pretty good job keeping up with them. They’re the best too; they always dote on her and she just eats that right up. They pull out all of their old toys and set them up so they’re ready when she arrives. They run to the basement to play with dolls, play school, or play hide-and-seek with her. The other side of the family loves when my son comes around; those boys sure like to rough him up! Not sure if he, being the teenager he is, loves it as much as they do, but he is usually a good sport about it.When the holidays roll around, I look forward to the days when my little girls don’t need to go to bed so early. Someday they will be able stay up late playing at Gram’s or their Great Aunt’s house, eating fall mix, making their own great memories with family. Maybe once all of us are out of these crazy toddler/baby years, us cousins can enjoy what our parents probably used to enjoy. Sitting upstairs talking, laughing, eating fall mix listening to the kids having a great time horsing around in the basement.
