On being an Aunt

I got to keep Alicia's kids today while she and Todd went shopping. Alicia is Todd's sister and she has 3 kids, two girls and a boy. It was, of course, insanity having 6 kids but it's not something I've never done. I just shuffled them from room to room to garage to backyard. It worked fine.
The fun part was hearing the oldest call me from across the house. "Aunt Tereeeeesa!" I get to be an Aunt. A real one, not just some distant relative that gets seen twice yearly for a day. An aunt who spends all day hugging you and playing with you and yelling at you and everything. I love that! I love getting to be a part of my family for real, all the time. It rocks!
