*Disclaimer – this post contains a bunch of photos (like 20-ish) of two kids who may or may not matter to you, but are two of a very select group of people in my life; my nieces and nephews.
Of all the labels I can currently claim (daughter, sister, friend, student, etc), Auntie is definitely my favorite. I have spent the last few days with these two kiddos whom I absolutely adore. The littlest loves me when her parents aren’t around, but Tannon and I are best buddies (although, his dad sometimes rains on my parade). In any case, we have been having a fabulous time. Every morning I am awakened (or so they think) by cute little voices yelling “Boo” at the top of their lungs. I love it!
I get to watch kiddie movies, play with Playdough, build with magnets, create “water-slides”, share my shoes, tickle, dance, be a human jungle-gym, receive bear hugs and slobbery kisses, wipe snotty noses, go for walks, make Spiderman Mac ‘n’ Cheese, fill sippies with apple juice, and laugh and laugh and laugh. Two more days of this and then it’s on to the rest of the nieces and nephews for a week or so. I’m so enjoying the benefits of the student lifestyle right now!
All bundled up after freezing in the water…this bundling happened about every five minutes and lasted for about 15 seconds.
How lucky am I? I get to hang out with these kiddies all day right now! Such a fun life.
And it’s even more fun because I’m not their mom (not that I wouldn’t be so happy to be their mom…they are awesome kids), so I get to hand them right over for any kind of disciplining that may be necessary. Such a charmed life I live!
agreed. i love being an auntie. I get to go see two in the midwest in a couple weeks and was just recruited to watch the other two for a week when their parents go to puerto rico this summer. it’s great practice.
Hope has only been walking for four months, and yet she already does a better job with heels than me.
Wow- your niece took to those heels like it’s nothin’. That’s some serious skill.
Being an aunt is awesome! They are so cute Chloe…
