I don't have a whole lot of cousins. My mom was adopted to be an only child, and my father had 2 brothers but only one had children. When I was a child, visiting them was always a blast. They lived next door to my grandma, so we saw them every summer when we visited. However, my father and his brother were not close, so we didn't have much contact after we grew up. I still remember them fondly as childhood playmates, but they aren't the lifelong friends I hope that Aiden's cousins will be.
Things are different for him, I hope, because I am much closer with my siblings and adore my nieces and nephews. We try to gather as often as possible, but it isn't always easy. I am thankful for the technology we can use to keep in touch while we are apart, though. I am especially thankful for this recently as he has been able to keep in touch much better with his cousins on my husband's side whom he has never met!
Here is a little printable for you (click to download a copy without the watermark)... maybe you would like to make it into a card to send to your cousins... I know that random snail mail love makes everyone's day better! And hopefully there will be some more photos of these visits coming soon!
