No, this post isn’t about Justin Bieber (although I do have a touch of Bieber fever – doesn’t everyone?) I’m writing this time about the baby fever hitting my house! We’re expecting in a couple weeks and this time out, it’s not me who’s having the baby. My sister is having a baby and I am over-the-moon excited about it! It’s time for me to…. Auntie Up!
I am already an Aunt, 5 times over on my husband’s side, but this time it’s just a little different. I love my nieces and nephew so very much and look forward to spoiling them as much as I can, but to think that in a month’s time, my own little sister will become a Mom, my heart just about explodes. Another bonus: she’s having a boy! I’ve been all about the girls for so long with 3 daughters and 4 nieces. When my nephew arrives, I know he will quickly wrap all of us around his little finger.
I look forward to helping my sister with the baby, too. I think it’s going to be hard for me to give him back at the end of each visit, although I definitely won’t miss the middle of the night feedings (good luck, sister!).
Now, here’s where YOU come in! Anyone out there with a sister who has kids already? How did you feel when you became an auntie? Friends tell me it’s almost like becoming a mom again. True? Weigh in below with comments. I’m so curious to hear your stories!
