My cousins rule

I'm a little worried because my sister is really beating me at the children race. Not that it's really a competition or anything, but she's going to have 2 little ones before the ear doctor and I even start serious thought on the subject. And it's not really the fact that she'll have them and I won't. Really, I'm beyond fine with that.

The thing that bums me out is that our kids might not be quite close enough in age to be best cousin/friends. Both the ear doctor and I are really close with our cousins. I would hate to deny them the kind of friendships I have.


I mean, seriously, I would be a horrible parent if my kids didn't have cousins like I do. Just check out my cousin and her husband:




Do people get any cooler than this? I think not.

Mabye they can have best second cousin/friends... that's what I'm counting on for my kids since I'm an only child.

Oh yeah... I should be working....

Thanks!! I agree, it really is fun to be friends with cousins. I think of all the fun summers and winters we had at grandma and grandpa's. We had some good times! It makes me excited for Christmas.

The cousin I'm closest to is 6 years older than me, as opposed to the two cousins just 1-2 years older than me. Personality has a lot to do with long-lasting friendships, however you're related. And clearly your cousins have a lot of personality!

I kind of feel the same way, except I'm the one with all the kids waiting on my brother and sister in law to catch up with us. He's a chaplain and leaving for Iraq in Jan., so I know it'll be at least a year and a half (ish) before they can really even start trying :(.
