My tribe includes:
4 cousins-once-removed (including 2 infants and 2 kids)
1 toddler niece
& 5 dogs
This posse of 11 adults, 3 kids, 1 toddler, 2 infants, and 5 canines shared one roof and one bathroom at the family cabin last night. The infants and toddler came to a gentlewomen’s agreement to make it a quiet night’s sleep for all.
All the noise, hub-bub, drama, and dish washing made me realize that our parents and our aunt and uncle are saints for having nurtured and endured our cohort of 4 in summers past. The cycle begins anew with the newest crop of Greiling kids.
