Please Excuse Me, I’m Busy Being an Auntie

Friday’s Confession …

I LOVE being an Auntie. Big surprise, right? Yesterday was my first time babysitting my beautiful 3-month old niece, Haven, and she was a joy. I fed her, changed her, laughed with her, watched Yo Gabba Gabba! with her – shouts out to DJ Lance Rock. Ahem, don’t ask – and discovered I still have the magical touch to put babies to sleep.

I also discovered the five best things about being an Auntie. They are:

The love. Who knew you could love a little baby so much that wasn’t your own? And, she already told me with her eyes, “I love you, Auntie Lolo! You’re the best Auntie ever!”

I can sing. Well, I can’t. Nobody else wants to hear me sing, but my little niece does. She smiled and giggled. My kids politely ask me to stop.

The shopping. That’s right, a cute little girl needs cute little stuff. I’m not a big shopper but I can’t help myself sometimes when I see the adorable little girl clothes. Hmm, this could be on the top five worst things, too. Fortunately such a list does not exist.

They go home. Or you do. That’s right, I said it. Refer to the first item on the list. I love my niece dearly and the fact that I get to give her back to her parents and get a great night sleep makes our bond even stronger. Selfish, I know, but so true.

And finally, the pictures. I get to take great pictures like these …

… and show off my little niece like any good Auntie does.

She is a doll! That is one thing that I will always regret...being a good aunt. I have a lot of nieces and nephews and they all live far away. I wish I had a better relationship with them.

Haven said "Eeeee-ooohhh-yaaaay!" which means "Thanks, I love my Auntie!" ;)

Thanks for being a great Auntie and a wonderful sister!
