This Beautiful Boy


is my nephew. He spends lots of time here with us. On a Thursday afternoon he comes home from school with me. We were having a conversation (he LOVES a chat) and I made a cheeky comment about being the eldest is the best.

He said, “Idon’t think that is a very fair thing to say, Tracey.”

“But you’re the eldest too, that makes you the best. ” I defended myself.

“I am not the eldest!” he cried. “Your kids are much older than me.”

“No, no. I mean the eldest in your family.”

“Your kids are in my family.”

Again I try to defend myself. “I mean the family that lives in your house with you.”

“That’s not a family. That is just my mum, my dad and my sister. What about my cousins, don’t you remember that cousins are in your family.” By this point in the conversation he was speaking to me as though I was quite simple.

I conceded defeat, “Yes I see your point. How silly of me to forget that cousins are in your family.”

We really ought to just give up and move to a kibbutz. It should be communal living for these cousins. They just love each other!

  7. Hi Tracey! You popped by my blog asking about the Molly Goes to Paris fabric so I came over here! The dinosaur 2-D blanket is super cute! I also enjoyed reading about your nephew, son & daughter conversation exchanges! Aren’t they a hoot?!

    I couldn’t figure out where you live from your blog (& you similarly would have problems identifying mine!). I live in Canada. The store, Quilt Essentials, is where I purchased my Molly Goes to Paris fabric and its telephone number is (306) 779-0300. I can’t recall if it is open on Mondays but it has a special of purchase 4 fat quarters and get the 5th free on Wednesdays in June 2007. That may reduce the costs a bit too!

    Let me know if you need any further help! Have a great day!

    I hope my boys don’t wake up to the fact that Declan isn’t their real cousin, because they love him..

  10. What a lovely thought. Your nephew is absolutely right!

  11. I meant to add, before my frozen fingers hit “Submit”, that our family consists of the people we love the best!
