When I was finally at the appropriate dating age I was very selective as to whom I would date. I had two rules:

1)I would not date a guy whose hair was longer then mine

2) I would not date a guy that was an only child

My thinking behind #2 was that since I was an only child if I married an only child our children would not have aunts and uncles or first cousins. Pretty intuitive on my part, don't you think? Imagine my excitement when I started dating Shawn and found out he had three brothers. But it didn't work out quite as I had planned. Of the four brothers there are nine children but we're in three different states. The cousin in Oklahoma with us lives about two hours away and leads a pretty busy life. Not quite what I had wanted.

But wait! There's good news. Because my Uncle Kevin is 14 years younger then my dad and 12 years older then me, his children are pretty close to mine in age. They are the family that blessed us with the Disney trip and who we bothered for a few days recently. While we were there I got what I had always wanted.




And general merriment-It was wonderful!
