So you know how I’ve said that I would NEVER have another child because I am already far too unhinged and have three wonderful cherubs already.
Well, you’ll be very excited to find out that there WILL be a new baby in my life.
Because I AM AN AUNTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes my sister has had a baby especially for me, well I suppose for her a little bit as well. But mainly FOR ME!
If you can’t already tell I am ridiculously excited and overjoyed that I can start official Aunty duties for my NIECE.
Yes that’s right she’s had a bonny wee girl and in just two weeks (they will be the longest 2 weeks of my life) I will get to smell, cuddle and mollycoddle that wee bairn.
I was leaping about the house at 11.30pm last night when I got the news, anyone would have thought it was I who had just given birth.
This is a new role for me and one I am going to take very seriously, in fact I’m going shopping this afternoon because BABY SHOPPING.
She has three older cousins who are already planning their futures together and can’t wait for snuggles.
Oh the cuteness is just overwhelming in our household right now. The kids even got busy with my new sequin pillows and wrote this!
I’ve waited for years to be able to be that Aunty that spoils their sister’s kids rotten and tells them stories about what their mum did when she was little.
Oh it’s going to be so much fun. And the best part? It’s all care and love and ZERO responsibility.
So from now on I shall be known as Aunty Em – just like that dear old lady in the Wizard Of Oz!
What a wonderful day it will be when I hear those words Aunty Em from my beloved little niece. I can’t wait.
But until then I get to play mum, have snuggles, see that first smile, giggle and watch as she learns to walk and talk.
Who knew being an Aunty would be so darn exciting.
So all you Aunties out there, hit me with some ideas for a wonderful first present for my niece.
Oh and I suppose I should say well done to my sissy for her ‘small role’ in creating my new status. YOU ROCK SISSY xxxx
