extension

bumper-sticker1Well, Uncle Laura is hangin’ with the nephs in Ohio, and it occurs to her that our society’s current-day practice of just two parents living in a household is not practical. (This hit me the other night, as my sister and her husband were each helping a child bathe and get ready for bed and I was making lunches for the next day and washing  socks and answering the phone and checking homework.) The idea of extended family makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately, it’s not as common as it once was.

What we seem to have as a norm in our corner of the world these days is the overextended family.

Since I can’t download any of the really cool family-related photos which I shot this week, here’s a completely (or almost completely) unrelated one I grabbed a couple of weeks ago en route to work.
