"I don't want to scare you," Rick woke me in the middle of the night to say, "but Cora and Jamie are not in their bed."
"I'm sure they just snuck downstairs to play Wii with the older kids and fell asleep." I said, trying to convince myself as well.
Fortunately for me, I was stopped before making it downstairs where I would have discovered that the girls were not there, leading to my early demise from a heart attack and robbing me of the chance to turn forty, (I so want the chance to be forty) when Rick suddenly announced, "Wait, they're sleeping under the bed."
Though I would never, EVER want to sleep under a bed (in fact fits of claustrophobia kept waking me the rest of the night as I thought of sleeping with a bed inches above my face. Yuck.) I will admit that there is nothing quite as magical as spending summer nights with cousins.
