Today I met my niece for the first time, at exactly two days old. I smiled at her and told her that I am her aunt and that we are going to have many beautiful adventures when she is older.
This is something I hope to give to her brothers too. This year we are going to take both of them to the zoo, and I have no doubt there will be giggles and wild and wonderful adventures with both of them.
This is why I love to be an aunt. I love to connect with them. I love to play and giggle with my nephews and nieces, do things with them that they love and share what I love in my life.
I really love that I am allowed to play a part in their lives this way.
