I’m an Aunty again. This afternoon my step sister brought into this world, my third niece.
I have a card and present waiting. I was all warm inside and smiley. I still am.
It hit me that I hardly see my sister. Only when it is a gathering occasion. We don’t have the relationship most sisters have.
I guess that is due to becoming sisters towards your mid-twenties, not having lived together and having your own separate lives.
It would be nice to have a proper sisterly bond. Never know maybe in the future.
It is something I would like with all my step siblings. My thinking is three out of four ain’t bad. Our bonds may change in the future.
Back to the reason, I put pen to paper tonight.
Welcome, little one. The world is yours. So many happy times ahead. Big love to you, your mummy and your brother. Love your Aunty.
