Aunt life

I am not a kid person.

Children are loud, obnoxious and sticky.

They are always leaking some bodily fluid, they scream for no reason and they just do dumb things.

I’m pretty sure I didn’t even like kids when I was a kid.

I never saw myself wanting to spend time around toddlers, and I never saw myself as the kind of person who would willingly change a diaper, but all that changed almost six years ago.

On June 16, 2012, I became an aunt.

It was one of the best days of my life.

I have three nephews who I absolutely adore: Everett(5), Griffin(3) and Crawford(1).

Those little boys are my world.

They are the best adventure.

Everett is my oldest nephew. He is probably the strangest five year old ever.

He loves the Beatles, Mick Jagger and Wheezer.

He is creative, funny and independent. He marches to his own drum and inspires me in every way.

My middle nephew, Griffin, is the sweetest soul.

He is kind, funny and dedicated.

Griffin’s two favorite things are killer whales and the color green.

He tries to make everyone feel special and he gives the best hugs.

My youngest nephew Crawford is fearless.

We have to keep a close eye on him because he will climb on anything and everything.

Crawford loves to eat, dance and listen to the Amazon Echo sing "Happy Birthday."

He’s my baby, and I adore him so.

I could go on and on about how much I love these boys.

They make me a better person and I could not imagine my life without them.

Being an aunt is my favorite thing in the world.

I never thought that I could feel this way about these little fellas, but I would not want it any other way.
