One of my five siblings brought his whole crew out for food and fun. We passed the baby and tickled the toddler. Then I had video game and movie fun with the eldest. My favorite part was sitting next to the toddler and watching her “read” and explain the books I got out for her. I love books in any form and I’m glad to see a new generation get into them as well. Next time, maybe I can read to her and she can explain them to me again.
Family, whether blood or chosen, is the basis of our story/stories. There is always someone to back us up or tell us we are wrong, but we know the love and support are there. As well as someone to take the last cookie and give a wet, kiss sloppy and say, “bye,bye”.
