This post made me cry because I have too many relationships with members of my immediate and extended family similar to the ones you had/have with your grandma and cousins. I wish family relationships were not so complicated! I wish I knew how to repair them. Thank you for putting into words the thoughts and feelings I have, but are so difficult for me to express.

I don't remember that we took turns with the chair. But your description of it made me vividly remember it - the carpet-y seat, the uncomforable scrolled back. It's interesting how you describe Jamie - I always felt that way about you. I would go to the Christmas party and end up all sweaty and bedraggled from playing and then I would look at you and you would be all pretty and put-together. The cousins always seemed so aloof and glamorous and I couldn't imagine ever being as cool and confident and grown-up as they were (I still can't.)

Great post. Thank you for helping me remember something I didn't know I had forgotten. xoxo
