My cousins from NY, Colleen and Darren, arrived Saturday 4/7 for a long anticipated visit! We thoroughly enjoyed reconnecting with them, and meeting their extraordinary children (extraordinary because of their wondrous behavior!). Indeed, their five children were no more work than our two. Darren joked around about how if you already 5, what's 2 more? But, by the end of the week, I was agreeing with just the reverse! Of course, as a parent of two little rascals (and an aunt of two more wild coyotes), my expectations were adjusted accordingly . . .but still, I was left thinking that maybe another little girl wouldn't be bad at all!
