Good things come to those who wait

May 13, 2008

After all that airport time on Friday, I did get to spend some wonderful time with my nieces and nephews.   Here are my 5 favorite things about being an Aunt.

1) Play time – organized games, pick up games and made up games; dress up, performances and pretend

2) Story time –  stories they tell me or I tell them, with or with out books, pictures or logical endings

3) Nap time – their desire to be tucked in or snuggled beside, the quiet request to have ones back rubbed or special blanket given

4) Our time – time away from mom and dad when I get the real story behind how a rock collided with their brothers’ forehead or why they did not want to share their special angel wings

5) This time – the moment where I think they will never be cuter, funnier or more brilliant than they are at this very second and knowing that second won’t  last.
