Can I just say that being an Aunty is one of the best things ever. You get all the fun, none of the work and no mess. Well… That last bit isn’t quite true, I’ve had some less than pleasant things on me thanks to some leaky nappies but nothing that completely grossed me out.

I refuse to be that annoying Aunty who pulls their cheeks and tells them how adorable they are but while they’re little and can’t escape me, I totally am that person. I’m not sure when the cut off for this type of behaviour needs to stop – maybe when they’re old enough to wriggle free and wipe away my kisses with a disgusted look on their face… At least I don’t wear lipstick so I won’t leave any evidence.
How can this not make you go ‘awww!!’

One was awesome. Two was even better but three?! Three is the best!! I am so in love with the fact that I’m so close to my newest nibling, E. I visit him every week and adore seeing the changes in him. I cannot wait to meet chubby Cabbage Patch Doll, R, in September. She’s my current phone wallpaper with the biggest cheeks I think I’ve ever seen! I can’t wait to see them in person! And before you think I’m playing favourites, don’t worry, there’s a fortnightly rota going so each nibling gets a turn as my phone wallpaper. I think it’s K’s turn next! And speaking of my little bear, I can’t WAIT for regular play dates with him. It always looks like so much fun from the other side of the computer via skype!

I promise I won’t be an Aunty bore and go on about their cuteness, how my niblings are better than yours, their hilarious stories or any of that other stuff so I’ll finish up by saying… To their parents – J and L, L and G – you guys have the most awesome, cute, amazing kids ever – thanks for having them!!
