Yesterday, I spoke to two of my nieces on the phone.
One lives in San Diego (my brother’s daughter) and the other one is not really my niece, but she calls me her aunt anyway. I “adopted” her last year when I was on sick leave.
They are both 2 going on 3 later this year.
I love talking to them on the phone. They are at an age where there is no filter and there is so much innoncence in what they say.
For instance, yesterday, my niece in San Diego took great pleasure in announcing to me that she was wearing panties. I was thinking to myself why is she telling me this, then I realized she was telling me that she was finally potty trained and all proud of it.
They are my little rays of sunshine.
