🤗 I want all of the fun stuff and...


It's National Aunt and Uncle Day! Hey, that's me! I love being an aunt because it's like skipping straight to grandparent without the hassle of raising your own kids. You get to drop in and hang with some kiddos your siblings have to do all the hard stuff with, give 'em candy and gifts or tell them knock-knock jokes, and then disappear at the first sign of any real responsibility!
Since I am not much of a kid person, this is the exact level of child interaction that I find ideal for me. I'm not particularly great with kids either, so I think this works out well for me and children.
