Look at these two boys ... goof balls! My cousin was in town for business with her son the other day so we arranged for the boys to spend the day with each other. For anyone that only has one child, you know how truly wonderful it is to take care of other children. I know this sounds weird but having more children around actually makes my job easier ... they entertain each other! Unfortunately, my son has no first cousins on my side of the family and only 2 cousins his age on my husband's side of the family... and they live 8 hours away. When I was growing up, we spent so much time with our cousins - Mom's and Dad's side of the family. I feel bad that my son won't have that same experience. So we improvise! Second cousins work just as well as first cousins.

  1. I know EXACTLY what you're talking about! I'm an only child, well, sorta...I have 3 half-siblings and 2 steps, but they've never lived close. I grew up spending tons of time w/ my cousins and my little boy is an only child. He would be lost without his cousins. It is easier when there is another kiddo around. The pic is too cute!

    I'm new to your blog! I love it!

    Hope you're having a great day!
