History Repeats Itself

As many of you know I am the oldest of six children, but at one time there were just two of us - me and Lauren. Now, I am nearly three years older thand Lauren, but when she was a baby the age didn't matter and we did enjoy playing together. My mother tells the story that in the morning she would find me in Lauren's crib. I would climb up in there and we would play together for quite some time before Mom would come and get us.

Recently, the kids have been waking up in the morning about the same time. I get one up and then take that one to the other's room. They always want to get in the other one's bed. At first I was a little concerned and then I decided to take advantage of it.

I can't tell you how fun it was for me to hear them giggle, squeal, and make believe together while I quickly did a few chores. It is so fun to see history repeating itself - the kids just like me and Aunt Lauren so many years ago just playing away in her baby crib. :)

This is a great idea! Do you think I could put all three of mine in a crib without breaking it? Oh, wait. That would be like over 100lbs. of combined weight. Probably not, ha ha ha!

Yea, not too sure how that would work out. Judah would probably no longer have a bed, but Joshua and Jayden - a memory that would last a lifetime. :)
