Oh By the Way


I'm in Chicago.

I may have forgotten to mention that...even to CountryGirl.

My bad.

So here I sit, by the pool, watching niece (7) and nephew (5) flopping around like catfish, and eyeballing the new little squib nephew (3 weeks)...of whom I am deathly afraid. But he doesn't scream when I hold him - he's the first, so that automatically makes him my favorite.

Mommas aren't supposed to have favorites, but Aunties can.

Being an auntie is great! I love sending my niece and nephew candy and noisy toys. They love me... and my sister mutters under her breath... it's great!

I enjoy being an aunt. I love to play with my nephew. Don't be afraid, they're quite resilient!

I love spoiling my nieces in a way I don't my own kids.

And Chicago? I'm glad you didn't mention it or I'd have been pissed. Instead, I'm just bitter. :)

Two of my nephews #4 and #5 aged 5 and 3 respectively got a drum kit and an electric guitar for Christmas las year - I love being an Aunt! My brother hasn't forgiven me yet. Have fun, they're quite hard to break!

I wish I'd known that this was the weekend you would be there. Dory and I wanted to come visit and I still owe you a cigar and liquor. I guess I'll have to continue owing your for a little bit. Enjoy the Windy City!
