We've been out of town for a family wedding. While driving back to Will and Anita's house after the reception, Schatz was telling me all about her new family.
Schatz: Mikey is my new cousin, Mommy.
Me: Yes, Mikey is your new cousin.
Schatz: And Elyna is my new cousin.
Me: Yep, Elyna is a new cousin.
Schatz: Bob is my new cousin, too.
Me: No, sweetie. Bob has always been your cousin. He is my cousin so he's your cousin, too.
Schatz (slowly, as if talking to a small child): No, he wasn't, but he's my cousin now.
