Aunt Hilary

Day 99.

Thursday, April 9, 2009.

My nephew Evan was born two years ago today. Happy Birthday Evan! With another niece or nephew on the way (yay for you having 3 kids, Lara!), and looking forward to seeing my other niece and nephews Michaela, Eli and Caleb this weekend, I'm just feeling grateful.

I am grateful to be an aunt.

What fun to have nieces and nephews! I think it would be even more fun if I didn't have my own kids to take care of when I was around my nieces and nephews. I know I was a better aunt to Michaela, Eli and Caleb before I had my own kids to worry about. But, I do my best with my own needy children tugging at my pants, and still love them like crazy.

  1. I know, exactly. It is really cool being an aunt and while I wouldn't change anything about sharing this journey of motherhood with you, it does take away from being an aunt. But don't sell yourself are still an amazing person in our kids' lives and we are all grateful for Aunt Hilary.
