Minutes From the 1st Cousin Meeting

President: Big
Vice President: Lil'
Secretary: Miss E.

It was all agreed that Big will be the leader of the pack. However Lil' and Miss E. will have full reign over the playhouse and all of its contents at Nettie's. Big will reside as driver and director of the Uncle Willy.

All 3 cousins will share custody and ownership of Yancey and will share him accordingly. As for Nettie and Papa, they will also be split down the middle but Miss E. will take over the nightly bed visits until she is ready to go into her own room. At that time, Lil' and Big will rotate making sure that Miss E. gets her equal time with them made up during the daylight hours.

The meeting was brief. It was successful and it was oh so sweet.

That night, I was showing Papa some pictures from Big and Lil's meeting with Miss E. Big was looking at them with us and he leaned over and said to me, "Mama, I almost cried when I held her." I said, "Why Big?" He said, "Cause she's so tiny and sweet." With that Mama here burst into tears herself. The prayers that night went like this...

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Angels watch me through the night
and wake me in the morning light.

God bless Mommy, Daddy, Big and Lil'
and thank you Dear Lord for sending us Baby E.

These were the minutes from the 1st cousin meeting.
