    Default Are you an Aunt?

    Just curious. My sister does not want kids. She travels the world and isn't interested in slowing down at this point (she's 31)
    Sometimes I feel like I am missing out on that experience...
    Are you an Aunt??

    No, not yet. I'm very sure I will be in the next few years with my brother and SIL. I'm not sure my sister will have children but I really hope so (if she wants to) - something about my sister having a child seems so special to me.

    YES!!

    I am so excited to be an aunt to my brothers twin boys I love them so much

    My oldest brother also has twins , but they live in New Brunswick and I don't see them very often at all.

    My DH has lots of nieces and nephews, but because of him being 16 years older then me, His nieces and nephews are all around my age , some even older lol


    I hope that some day you can experience the joy that comes with being an aunt

    I.ve been an aunt since i was born, since my sibs are so much older, but we aren,t close. The sister i,m really close to never had kids. I have 9 nieces and nephews and 11 great nieces and nephews. My sibs are 13-20 years older, so i have a nephew who is older than me and others are 6 months -16 years younger.

    My SIL is not having kids of her own. She has a stepson so I am an Aunt to him technically but not called Aunt by him. My brother has no kids yet. I am called Aunt by my close friends kids.

    ??? Im confused. Are they not nieces and nefews if they arent on your side? My uncle would still call me his neice even though he isnt my mom's brother.

    Yup - I've got 20 nieces and nephews. The oldest is 30 and the youngest is only a week old. I was an Aunt for the first time when I was 9.
