As an only child, I knew from the get-go I’d never have nieces and nephews related to me by blood. So when I married a man with 5 siblings, I was thrilled I’d get them via marriage.
I have 8 nephews and nieces and adore each and every one of them. They’re divided into common age groups and run the age range from 30 down to 16.
The two youngest gave me a Christmas ornament/gift several years ago when they were very young that I absolutely adore.
They don’t even care that I’m not an aunt-by-blood! I love that.
And I love them.
More tomorrow, peeps.
