My DGC live on opposite sides of the globe and see each other not more than once a year. We have a boy, just 4, and a girl 3 1/2.
The fact that they are so close in age and that they don't live in each others' pockets, but that they are both used to playing with other children, means that when they are actually together - as they were recently - they interact and play together so beautifully, it is a joy to watch.
The American contingent with DGS were over for a family party and the DGD's other grandmother had brought along a large air mattress which was pumped up but not too hard. The two of them spent ages making each other jump up and down and rolling each other up in it. They had great fun splashing each other in the paddling pool and are both fond of what we used to call "rough and tumble".
They wave to each other over Skype and are happy to talk about each other when they are apart.
Does anyone else have touching stories of how cousins can sometimes get on better than siblings?
