Yesterday we got more proof that S is now, and always has been, the favorite uncle/aunt.
A while back I mentioned that Niece started buying Christmas gifts for the family. The first year I was left off, but my dog, Harley, made the list. Last year, I, again, was left off—or rather left in the other aunt category, and both Harley and S made the list. To tell you the truth—I am not offended or surprised. The girl has a love of dogs you can spot miles away and S is just really really good with kids.
Yesterday was Niece and Nephew’s final soccer game of the year. It was also the first one that S could attend. They were both overjoyed to have him there. Also, we got great proof that S is still the favorite of favorites:
- Nephew is studying Spanish. At his parent-teacher conference, my sister was told that Nephew had great motivation to learn Spanish so he could speak to his Uncle.
- Niece played her whole soccer game using one of S’s scrunchies for good luck. She also went around telling her whole team about her special S hair tie.
