Giving Thanks

All the cousins with Aunt Penny 🙂

We are in Alabama visiting my husband’s family and it’s been wonderful!

My dh is the only boy of 5 kids, and the first 2 grandkids were girls, too… Aunt Kim remarked today, as the gaggle of 5 cousins rolled by the window, that it was so odd to see all those boys around!

So many cool things, but one that Rocks: 5 boys from 3-13 and not a fight, not a whine, not a tear! Why? I think it’s because all these kids are parented very…sensitively, if not utterly unschooled. All those parents meet their kids needs as best they can– even if they feel sheepish about following their gut instincts 🙂 The bottom line? No culture shock when visiting, no hiding saying ‘yes’ or listening to scolding! So much to be thankful for!
