He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Cousin

As an only child, my son can be lonely at times. But, this summer he was treated to a week with his cousin visiting from North Carolina. They played non-stop. At breakfast, the smack talk began with “Oh yay, I’m going to kill you today!” Because of their epic Nerf battles, my husband and I were wearing protective gear to walk through the house. And, we set up a bunker in our bedroom. When they were out of bullets and tired from Nerf, they killed aliens in Halo. The house was filled with screams and laughter. My son had the time of his life. To make sure that we get the “Best Uncle and Aunt” titles, we made sure to treat our nephew to his first Maine lobster. Do you have an only child? How do you entertain him/her?
