My sister-in-law is a lacrosse coach at Stonehill College and she has most of the summer off. But, she needed a little help with her kids, Justin and Lila, this past week because she was running a camp for highschool students through the college. A bunch of us pitched in to help out, her aunt and sister in-laws (myself included) all agreed to take the kids for a day.
They are great kids and get along wonderfully with mine, but taking care of four kids for the day definitely made me appreciate just having two! I was fortunate to get a little help in the afternoon by the angels in the picture above, my cousin Anna and her good friend Siobhan. They came by with a much-needed iced coffee and even better, an offer to take the kids for a walk so I could get a break.
Thanks guys!! It truly does take a village to raise kids, and to prevent us moms from going completely out of our minds. 🙂
