When a child is born, the family increases manifold. One such beautiful relationship is that of an aunt with her little niece, which is but special, formed by the bond of two females related by blood. No, it’s not a parental relationship, where roles are clearly defined and definitely not a stranger, where no roles are necessary.
Happiness does come in small packages. From expecting parents to their extended families, a newborn baby is a bundle of joy. Apart from the immediate bond the child makes with her parents, she also becomes her grandparents’ pride and her aunt’s pet. The bond that she shares with either of her parents’ sister is that of otherhood, very much like motherhood, but with the prominent factor of other. The child will look on her aunt as her friend when in times of need, a guide when she stages silent battles with her mother, and a confidant when she needs a listening ear. She forms a special bond with this other woman in her life, whom she so tenderly calls aunt.
Celebrating Being an Aunt
Becoming an aunt is absolutely out of your control. There is no prior life planning or thought behind it; it just happens, and the event changes your life. Though not the fruit of your womb, the baby in your arms becomes a reason for celebrating.
