Family Dynamics

I am here in Estes Park at the YMCA Camp at a Daly family reunion. My husbnd, Mike planned this whole adventure, down to the meals and activities. Last night we had a meeting of all the adults to go over the rules. I watched in amusement as the siblings all assumed their normal place the hierarchy of the family.
Mike, the oldest, attempted to reign over the rest, telling everyone how the meals would be handled. (the rest of the sibs shall remain nameless to preserve any sense of dignity they may need). The youngest kept sniping at Mike, disrupting his flow. Since he is also a CEO, he tried to take over the administration of events, and when things got heated, one of the middle sibs started cracking jokes to diffuse the tension. The other middle sib tried to keep the peace while making positive suggestions.
More to follow as this week progresses….
