The Art of being an Aunt

The Art of being an Aunt

The Art of being an Aunt. Why do I call it an Art? Because every real labour of love is for me an Art.

I am 40 years old and am not a Mother. Not for a conviction but by chance.

I have 2 nieces, daughters to my older Sister and with a large age difference between them. One is a teenager the other is still a child.

The art of being an Aunt has its advantages and disadvantages, like everything in life, however for me the advantages supersedes the disadvantages. We are a little like a Mother without the responsibility, but we can give the same love, we can spoil without the consequences and we can be the shoulder to give support without being the adult that gives the example.

With a family that is very present like mine, essentially all female since my father’s death, sometimes the limits of how much we can intercede in each other’s personality gets blurred by the “Latinism” of each of us. The screams, cries, laughter and love make us one that sometimes feels as suffocating as it provokes an emptiness when it does not happen.

I have lived far from my nieces, one of them was born near me, the other on the other side of the world, but from the first day that I held them in my arms, I knew that I would always be connected to them and they would always influence my heart.

To be an Aunt is to love someone that is not ours but that in a way also belongs to us. It is to accompany their lives and stories from the outside but with the feeling of love of being on the inside.

I am an Aunt. And I love my nieces.

Tell us what do you thing about the art of being an Aunt!

    First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how
    you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    hints? Kudos!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips
