Ricki’s Brother and family were here for Shabbas. Ricki got along fine with her two nieces (age 2,and 4) most of the time. We had no rough incidents like last time and things went FAIRLY smoothly. Here and there they had a few squabbles, caused by Ricki’s overbearing ways, but on the plus side she helped them behave better (like making them pick up their stuff….).
It seems that this, like most areas of Ricki’s life, is a study in SLOW PROGRESS!
