Today was dentist day for Ale and me, we don´t say it out loud but we really look forward to this monthly visit.... I guess it´s because is about the only alone time that we get lately, plus Ale is so excited about having a pretty smile that she doesn´t mind the torture! Today was a bit different since we took Thelma with us! and from now on Thelma will join us once a month on our big girls getaway afternoon, where we talk, dance to the music in the car, and have some pan dulce before getting home!
Thelma is my oldest niece from my side of the family (its six cousins on my side and 17 on Gabriel´s side), My sister Lilena and I were pregnant at the same time both with Ale and Thelma, and with our middle children, Emi and Mercedes. Being pregnant together was fun, she has always joked that I just couldn´t resist the temptation and had to copy her (which is true but will never tell her that!)! but even better than sharing our bumps, has been raising our families together! Our husbands sometimes don´t get why we have to speak so many times during the day, or why since so early.... haha, but they have come to understand that this is a joint effort, we are our own little tribe!
Lilena works, this is great because it has given me the chance to share even more with my nieces, since they were little I have taken them to swimming lessons, tennis, ballet, parties and now once a month to the dentist! Even better, aside from being cousins, they share the same school, the same grade, the same classrooms, which means same friends and parties.... so basically, these four are more than cousins, more than friends.... they are pretty much sisters! Isn´t this something to be grateful everyday?
I started with the dentist, passed to my sister, and ended up talking about cousins... that´s life I guess! So here I live you with some pictures of the girls (las niñitas) over the years!
