I am an aunt.
It feels as though my world has changed instantly. The past nine months did nothing to prepare me for this new reality. Eat, sleep, work, and think about my nephew.
It’s not my sister’s life that has changed. Oh, no. It’s mine. I’ve been so distracted that I haven’t been cleaning much and my writing has fallen off (Yes, I’m blaming it on my baby nephew. So his fault).
All my sister has to deal with is whining, crying, lots of messes, being kept up to all hours, and that’s just from my brother-in-law. The baby adds dirty diapers and a complete life change. Obviously my problems are bigger and more important than hers.
(PS: I love my nephew so much! And I’m very thankful for him. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!)
