Out of the mouths of babes...

My 3 year old nephew came bounding up to me, but instead of his usual greeting -"Hello Auntie! Have you brought me a present?"- he hailed me with the words: "Auntie! How come you're so fat?"

Thank you, Romeo. I love you, too.

Yeah. Wouldn't be without them, really. ;-)

I get the 'auntie where is my present' bit too!

Were we this bad as kids? I don't know about you, but I remember that when my aunties came to visit, I'd always assume they came to see my Mum & Dad, and made myself scarce.

Not my nephews and nieces, though. First, they clamber all over me and cuddle me half to death; then, they drag me off for fun and games. If I'm very lucky, I may just get a word with my sister -- but mostly, not a chance.

yeah I know what you mean, when the aunts and uncles used to visit, it would be the cousins all gotta play in the kitchen while the grown ups sit and have tea in the living room hahahaha

Exactly! And at the time, I was convinced we had the better deal -- it's good to see that at least one expectation of what it would be like to be a grown-up came true. ;-)

oh definately, and I still am the one out playing too:D

[sighs and shakes head] Don't you just love children.

Actually, I do -- little tearaways, the lot of them, but life would be so much less fun without them and their straight-talking ;-)!

Actually I do too. But they do try my patience some times. I read your entry and imagined how I would have felt if I had been his mother.

His mother just sat reading her magazine and said "Don't worry, he says it to everybody these days - even me". My sister, you should know, has never outgrown a size 6, and has no clue what it feels like to turn into a human blob, despite your best efforts.

OTOH, my sister can't do yoga for shit. ;-)
