All kids are adorable; we know that. But, if it's your nephew or niece, sh*t gets real! You are much more understanding than their parents, and you always spoil them with gifts. Eventually, they open up to you and you feel closer to each other. It's a life-long journey...You start by playing with them and teaching them how to make weird noises. Next thing you know, they are telling you about their first kiss or how they messed up the whole house. Then comes career, wedding, etc. Here, you'll realize once more how cool this journey is!
