We are so lucky.
I went looking for 2Flowers after an aborted bedtime routine and found this scene; 2Flowers snuggling her great-aunt, who was singing Primary songs. How many kids know their great-aunts well enough snuggle with them?
This particular great-aunt lives with us part time because she manages Grandpa's business now that he is gone. She is easy to talk to and fun to be around. She tells me stories about the family from before I married into it. She relates to my struggles as a young mom and is encouraging and uplifting to talk to.
She does the dishes. She holds my babies. She talks to me. She recommends books to me. She has a bajillion other things to do, but she spends time with me... and with my kids.
I love when she comes to stay.
