Today, marked a milestone in my cousin’s life. She turned 21.
And so all the relatives descended upon her parent’s home to celebrate.
In all reality, it was just another excuse for family to meet and catch up. It was a good excuse. I’m not taking away from it’s importance. But at every chance, my Mother’s siblings love to socialise with each other.
It was also a monumental event in other ways too. The Mothers and soon to be Mothers, in the next generation, had a chance to compare notes and share the intimate knowledge that only Motherhood can give you, with each other and the other uninitiated cousins amongst us.
It’s times like these, I’m proud to be an Auntie.
Embrace the next generation. They are a precious legacy.
