My sister keeps warning me she is going to “eat the baby” when my daughter is born. Although somewhat concerned by her constant declaration of this fact, I completely understand.
Of all my roles in life, I enjoy being an aunt the most. I love being a daughter, sister, wife, and friend, but for me, the most fun is being an aunt. Before my fist nephew was born, I did not believe in love at first sight. That changed the moment I met my first nephew. Then it happened again when I met the next three.
I am beyond excited about becoming a mother. I am equally excited about giving my sister her first niece.
She’ll finally get what I mean when I say I love, love, love, love my monkeys.
