Seriously?

OK the BBC review will have to wait until Monday guys - I'm sorry about that. But this news just can't wait. I found out last night I'm going to be an aunt!



My brother's girlfriend is having a baby. She told him on his birthday (which was this past Wednesday). I feel bad. I wanted to be excited for him, and I am of course, but it really didn't come across that way in my tone of voice. But he knows what's going on with me and he said he understood. And I was the first in the family to get the call! He loves his sister :)

Yay! Congratulations! Being an aunt is the BEST, because you get to have all the fun, and then give them back when they start crying. Or pooping.

Have a great weekend!

Jess said...

Wow, congratulations! Babies that you get to enjoy only when they're being cute and not screaming! Being an aunt is the best deal.

Is that wrong that I was just like "oh no!"? Me and my fear of babies. Sheesh.

Anyway, being an aunt is awesome. I'm one (by marriage) and the holidays are WAY more fun when there are children to spoil. (especially when they're not MY children...wait, did I just say that?) :)

Eeeh! Congrats! You're going to have so much fun being an Aunt. Aunts can get away with a lot of fun stuff (More candy? Why yes you can!) that moms and dads wouldn't approve of, making you the favorite of the kids of course!

Ashlie said...

I love being an aunt! And? Something else to focus on! Yeah!! I love happy distractions when I'm down.

Miss M. said...

I can't wait for the day I'm an aunt, but I really hope I get married and have kids before my sisters, since I'm the oldest.

Isn't that stupid?

Julie Q said...

aww congrats!!!

Princess Pointful said...

Yayyyyyy!
Family really is what matters most, especially in such hard times. Nothing will be such a good mood booster as a niece or nephew you can spoil!

Jenni said...

Congrats on being an aunt! th'as really exciting!

I know how you feel though...it's really hard ot be happy for others when things in your life aren't going the way you want them to.

Try going wedding dress shopping with a friend who just got engaged!!! It BLOWS! :)

Angela said...

Aw! Congrats to him on becoming a daddy and congrats to you on being an aunt! Very exciting, and I'm sure he understands that you're coming from a kind of hard place right now.

I just found you through a comment you left somewhere a long time ago (sorry I can't be more specific). I always like to visit other Michelles :)

Anyway, I'm so sorry to read about the tough time you're going through, but so happy to hear you'll be an aunt--there's nothing like it in the world, and you're going to love it!

Also, if you need a smile, one of my dogs just had puppies yesterday:

We have puppies!

Puppies always make me smile anyway ;)
