one of my favorite parts of growing up was watching the many, many new cousins that were born enter the world and be a part of their childhood from that point forward. ever since kai was born when i was 12, i've been able to watch five children from the time they were born grow up into little kids and big kids. it's been the most amazing experience to see so many youngsters grow into little humans and they continue to astonish me and make me feel old every day.
while i was in boise last week, i got to babysit this little boy and his older brother for the day. what a blast. in exchange, i got a nice lovely pair of danskas.
