Special times with kids

I love watching young children fall asleep, and the change from wiggliness and animation to peaceful slumber. I lay down with my niece R to help her fall asleep for her afternoon nap today. She was up and down, reading her book and finding her water cup, then all of a sudden she yawned and rubbed her eyes and was asleep within 30 seconds.

This afternoon R & T & J and I went to the park. We played tag, ran "underdog" on the swings, and climbed up the slide. It was so much fun! I made jewelry yesterday with the older girls, so this was my special time with the younger kids. You'll always find the two boys wrestling.

Sounds like you are really enjoying your nieces and nephews. They are lucky to have you as an aunt.Is that your niece E or R? I was confused.

You're such a fun aunt!!! She looks a lot like how I remember your little sister when you lived here.
