I got this picture yesterday from my sister with the caption "This is how I babysit. LOL." My nearly 6 year old nephew, Hayden, didn't have school yesterday so he got to play with his little sister and cousin Mia all day. Mia likes to dump out the toy bin so Hayden climbed in it. Well, Mia LOVES Hayden and whenever he's around she wants to do everything that he's doing so she tried climbing in it with him. What fun it is to be a kid!
Mia is the oldest girl and Hayden is the oldest boy in the family and they have a special relationship. It's so fun to see them together. They don't know how lucky they are to be able to see each other so often. I didn't have the luxury of growing up around my cousins.
My cousin Todd from Ohio did come stay with us every summer while we were growing up. He and I are about the same amount of years apart as Hayden and Mia. He's like an older brother to me which was pretty cool since I was the oldest in my family. He and I are still close even though we live so far apart. I was the only cousin in his wedding and he was the only cousin in mine. I hope that Mia and Hayden always stay this close.
