(Day 9) Honorary Aunties #1
One of the very best things in the world...honorary Aunties.
As older (ahem...'non-teenage') parents, we are lucky to have some of the most beautiful, funny, intelligent, loyal, and just plain kick-ass women in our lives.
Women who will laugh when nobody else gets your jokes (Aunty Shal)
Women who will go to the gym with you for two hours a day every day for six months when you are on a health kick (Aunty Jeana)
Women who will reply to your 101 texts in the middle of the night when you are kept up by a newborn baby, then bring you breast feeding supplies in the morning (Aunty Bec)
Women who understand that some days call for long phone calls, emergency chocolate therapy and soy chai latte's (Aunty Sarah)
And women who will offer to take all of your children off your hands when you are moderately sleep-deprived and ready to rip your hair out (all of the above)
How very lucky you are to have such amazing women in your life.
