After the devastation of last Saturday, it was a very good thing that the very next day, Aunt Brooke and Cousin Colton came to visit! I can’t tell you what a godsend they were at that particular moment. Obviously, it would always be amazing having them here, but especially when we desperately needed it, they were the perfect distraction!
The kids got along swimmingly. There were odd little clashes of personalities and small fights, but that’s only to be expected when you throw three toddlers into a small house together. Nobody went home with a black eye, which is sometimes the best you can hope for. But really, they got along extremely well. The kids are all perfectly spaced so that Colton just bounced between Mitchell and Rosie.
I think my favorite moment of the week, though, was when they all hopped into the shower together (apparently the preference for showers vs. baths runs in the family) and Mitchell did a double take of Colton: “Oh, yeah, you have a hang down too! Like me! See!” Priceless. Absolutely priceless.
Much of the week was spent just playing at home, because we required two vehicles to go anywhere, which was annoying. But we still had fun!
