I can’t believe I didn’t take my camera to the family lunch today! I missed so many great photo ops of my kids mucking around with their cousins.
Our kids are lucky to have cousins on both sides of the family who are all pretty close to their age. Our girls are the oldest but only by six months and at this ‘pre-school age’ the big kids all get along so well.
Despite the older boy cousins being quite loud and wild, something Zoe and Izzy would normally not appreciate, there must be some genetic link that makes it all ok, because the boys go nuts and the girls giggle wildly and everyone ends up having a wonderful time.
There was a moment today when the two big boys and the two big girls all had their heads together over some kind of mischief. They were all whispering and giggling and trying desperately not to let any of the adults or ‘the babies’ into their secret business before running off in all directions.
It was one of those moments that make you pleased to have family. One of those moments when you shake your head and smile and marvel at the genetic links that make those kids ‘know’ each other so well. One of those great moments… and I didn’t take the damn camera!
