I LOVE BEING AN AUNT!
When my nieces and nephews are born, their first picture always stars on my computer's desktop. I get so excited to meet them! I love to love on them. I love hearing the first version of my name... Aunt Nana... Aunt Dinana... Anna (which happens to be the name of one of my treasured nieces). :)
It's fun when my kids have kids their same age to play with at family parties. It's also fun to snag them as they run by and snitch hugs and tickles and smiles from them.
My nieces and nephews can always make me smile!
