I am a silly aunt.

Every year, two weeks before my birthday, I will get a text from my sister-in-law asking for my postal address in the UK so that my lovely nephew and nieces can make a nice birthday card and post it to their aunt.

So this year, without exception, I received that text this morning. I replied, with my address and asked after her.

When I got the reply, the text told me that it was my little niece who was texting.... and then it hit me!! My little niece who I onced cradled in my arms to try and coax to sleep; my little niece who once sang 'Happy Birthday' over the phone in the cutest little voice... my little niece is now 7 years old and is now using the mobile phone to text me !!!!

I know I am a silly sausage for saying this but I did get a bit misty-eyed, looking at the text and thinking to myself.... awwwwwwwwwww. Before you know it, she'll be getting married next !!! Gosh....how time flies !!

yeah lumps form in my throat everytime Ryan does something new, and each of his birthday! hubby told me to quit fretting about being a sahm cos the days when Ryan thinks i'm the greatest thing since sliced bread would be over soon. i think children are our gifts and we need to nurture them and love them and when the time comes, to let go of them to live their own lives

Oh my God! I didn't get to go online last night because the babies were being difficult but I have just posted a blog about my own babies and it pretty much follows this theme. How bizarre!
