Cousins

My mum's side of the family is large and spread out. I'm close to my mum's sister and get along with everyone else. But this weekend I realized that I'm missing out on knowing a lot of my cousins. Most of them don't live in the city. However, there are a few here that I hardly know. So this weekend I tried something new. I went out with my 2 cousins who are 14 and 17. I couldn't even believe how much fun we had together. We talked about anything and everything. No topic was off limits, really. I want to hang out with them on a regular basis now. Hopefully they do too. Besides, they make me feel like a teenager again, and that's really fun. Next time, movies, pool, and good food. Or maybe some pampering at a spa?

Makes me wonder what other relationships I'm missing out on.

Sounds like fun to me...

I've had some stuff going on the last few days that I would have loved to discuss with you - keep watching the blog - or the MSN.

I think my nieces might think you are cooler than I am! Not sure about that! Good to see you connecting.

I never grew up with cousins (they all lived in Holland) so I felt that I missed out on some neat relationships. I'm glad that my kids can experience friendships with their cousins. (I would have LOVED to have a cool cousin like you. Those two teens are lucky)
