Family & Days Out

The Cousins

Every Sunday afternoon sees us all going round to my parents in law’s home. The children love to see their grandparents, of course, and the Husband’s sister’s family also go round, so we all get to catch up together. I do like seeing the four cousins together. My nephews are 18 and 12, yet the four of them get on so well, with J and T looking out for the smaller two and getting involved in all sorts of play dreamed up by my two. Their play often involves using the boys as climbing frames, horses, piggy backs, anything involving lots of energy!

This is an ordinary moment, a very ordinary scene for us onlookers. ‘Tis a rare Sunday that doesn’t involve a cousin pile at some point….

I have long suspected that as well as being blessed with the two most wonderful children in the world, I may also have been lucky enough to get the two best nephews, too. I thought this before my two came along, and then when I see their patience with my wild and crazy pair, their desire to chat to them, play with them and keep them entertained, I am quite certain that they are the best around. I do love those boys, and it looks like their cousins are quite partial to them, too….
