If someone had told me 20 years ago that my brother Larry and I would have kids close in age that would play together like crazy and enjoy each others company immensely while eating all the forbidden foods that Grandma serves up and make a cute set on my parent’s swing on their back porch, well, I never would have believed them. (okay, I would have believed the part about my Mom feeding them junk food…) But guess what?! That IS just the case.
The B Man even completed his maiden voyage (and then several more) biking around the same block that I went around a kazillion times as a child, with his cousin Catherine in the lead, as his protector and guide. And he and Grace were like two peas in a pod.
And Little G and Dan-Dan just make the cutest pair, talking and playing together. It’s so sweet to watch.
I wish we could spend even more time with them but of course distance and well, life, just get in the way. I know my boys love the time they spend with their cousins and I cherish these moments for them. Luckily I can preserve them somewhat, here in this space.
P.S. In regards to yesterday’s post, the boys were VERY good today. I think they realized that Daddy and I were pretty darn close to selling them on the nearest street corner…
