A-Z Challenge: N is for...

NIECES and NEPHEWS  I have two nieces and six nephews from my full siblings and two nieces from my half sister.  My family is really close to my sister-in-laws family too and her sister's kids think of me as their Aunt too because I used to babysit them a lot and she has three girls and two boys, one of those girls is my Goddaughter. 

The immediate kids range in age from 9 to 16 and when they were young they all lived within about an hours drive of me so I spent a lot of time with them.  In a lot of ways they trained me to become a parent. 

Unfortunately they all live far away now so I only get to see them maybe once a year, but now that they are getting older I can keep in touch with them through email and Facebook. 


  1. Great subject! Being an aunt is great isn't it? I have 4 nieces and 2 nephews. 1 goddaughter and 1 godson.The oldest is 27 and the youngest is 11.

  2. Being an Aunt is the best! I have 8 nieces and 1 nephew, the oldest being 10 and the youngest being almost 4 (she is 3 months younger than my twins). I have an especially good time with the older nieces since they enjoy recruiting me to do fun things with them. A few months ago I got to take one of my 8 year-old nieces to see a concert (Selena Gomez). This included an amazingly fun dinner beforehand. Hopefully I will be able to continue to do that type of activity with them in the future!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
