Stopping at two kids was the right choice for us, especially with everything I went through with my back, and I don't regret it. But seeing friends and family having little ones now, almost seven years since Max was born, it does make me miss those times. The dollhouse has barely been touched over the last year (I'm planning to pack it all away and hold on to it for the next generation of kids to play with). I'm planning to do a serious purge of a lot of other toys before we begin our renovations in the spring. But what is most wonderful to see is how great my kids are with these other two. Yes, it's just one day, and they might not be as relentlessly kind to true siblings as they have been today. Or maybe they would have.
I think they've all had a good time today.
