One of the many reasons I love kids.

My sister lives just up the street with her husband, two kids, dog, cat, and fish. More often than not, my husband and I will go up the street to hang out, watch the kids, help with yardwork, etc. So we're up the street, my husband helping with the planting of trees (apparently a three person job) and so I'm watching the kids as they play with their friends.

First we play tag. Mind you, these are 3-6 year olds, so tag involves one person being it and everyone else chasing the "it" person. All of the sudden, I'm "it", and a bunch of screaming 3-6 year olds come hurtling at me and knock me down. Half kidding, I say... "Uh, okay... instead of chasing Auntie, why don't you all go run in circles around the tree a bunch of times!"

So what do they do? They all scream "YEAH!!!!" and go running circles around the tree until they fall down.

I laughed so hard I almost peed myself.

Kids are the funniest. My daughter makes me laugh every day!

The three to six crowd can be pretty entertaining. Plus, they'll do almost anything you (as the cool aunt) will tell them to do. Enjoy it. : )

So great for you and your sister that you all live so close!
My sisters and I would LOVE that!
