08 Apr cousins
My brother and sister-in-law had a baby boy, Simon, in November and we had the opportunity to travel to Little Rock and meet him for the first time over spring break. Simon made my kids cousins for the first time, and Kris and I are uncle and aunt.
I knew B and Miles would love being around a cute baby, but I underestimated their ability to grasp how special having a cousin is. They got it. Completely. Well…not completely. B said she wanted to marry Simon, so we had to explain the cousin role a bit more clearly!
He’s your friend for life. He’s part of your family. He’s one of you…the little people, the next generation finding your way in the world.
And he’s really adorable.
While we were there, we explored the city and decided that Little Rock has some of the best playgrounds in the U.S.
