My youngest sister is a really great aunt and really great with kids in general. Last week, she bravely watched over 5 munchkins so we could go out with our friends kid-free.
She’s also documented some of her standout moments with my two boys, particularly my eldest on her Facebook page. They definitely have a strong connection and bond. So strong that my son prays for her auntie to get a boyfriend. I’m sure God will answer strong with a man that is deserving of her. So here we go, my sister’s nephew-isms.

Me: Ethan you’re home?! Why are you home?
