Edit- I can’t think of one thing I would change about this weekend. I could wish it had lasted longer, but had it been longer, things might have started to decline a bit. I could wish I had felt better, but had I felt better, I would have cooked all weekend and been busy doing things that kept me from just hanging out with my kids. I wouldn’t change a thing- it was that dear to me.
Add- The added bonus of this weekend was a more extended family gathering with my sister’s family. There was a moment when I was sitting at the table watching my big kids and her big kids and my mom all watching a youtube video and it just made me so so so happy!
Appreciate- I am so enjoying watching my kids as their sibling relationships are “growing” and changing. I sometimes wish they kept in closer touch, but it was clear that they are still very deeply connected. I was especially appreciative of the individual attention C took the time to give each of the girls. They have what I always thought would be cool- a big brother- and he takes his responsibility very seriously!
