I'm an AUNT!!

  That’s right, my baby bro is gonna be a Daddy. And I get to be an aunt!!

Don’t get me wrong I love being a mother. I think it is the absolute best job in the whole world. But an aunt? An aunt gets to spoil and indulge and not worry about the consequences. An aunt gets to give the kid too much candy, keep it up way to late, and buy it noisy annoying toys with extra batteries. Or a drum kit!! When he is 4!!!! An aunt is cool and fun and no one ever screams “You’re not nice!!” to an aunt.

Bro, remember the time Lily face planted on your watch and got her first gigantic goose egg. Remember when you gave Hannah peanuts before she was one. Yeah, I can’t wait to be an aunt…

Congrats A and B!! You two are going to be the most amazing parents. You have always been so wonderful with out kids that I think you will be naturals. I know, as parents, we set the bar crazy high, but you know there is no shame in being #2.

  8. Congrats!!! I love being an aunt! You are so right about the spoiking etc. When my kids were little my sister used to get them all kinds of irritating toys and things like playdoh. Now that she is a mom she watches what she buys cuz she knows I will pay her back. When my nephew was born last year I bought him playdoh as a newborn gift as a joke. My sister knew then she was in for it.

  9. I love being an aunt! I had six nieces and nephews before I was a mom. (On my side. We also had 147 on my hubby’s side. Slight exaggeration but it was ALOT.) Spoiling and being the “cool” aunt rocks! have fun!
