I love that we live next door to my sister-in-law. And that she can cook, and bake… haha, that’s besides the point.
Kate can just pop over for lunch every day after school, and when they take their kids out, they simply holler over the wall and ask who wants to tag along.
So glad to be relieved of those full-on outings like taking them to the zoo (for the 100th time), science centre or night safari, yet my younger kids get an opportunity to go.
My other sis-in-law also lives close by, and #4 plays with her younger cousins quite often. Yesterday was the first time Kate joined them to take the MRT into town and #4 did a great job taking care of her.
On my own side of the family, my 6 kids have been the only grandchildren all these years.
My other sis-in-law also had her first baby last year and Kate is so fortunate to have several cousins around her age. Sadly, that is something my older kids have always wished for but will never have.
Kate loves taking care of her little cousins and calls them her ‘babies’. Although sometimes, she doesn’t quite do a good job.
I’ve learn a lot from the hubs side about living with a kampung spirit.
Thankful for so much support and thankful that our lives are enriched by one another.
