My favorite day of all time will always be January 17, 2013. The two most important humans to me graced this planet with their presence. While I was the last of my immediate family to find out about the twins (I’m totally over it, as you can tell), I won’t ever forget the moment on a Thursday late afternoon when Sister CBXB called and told me to pull over and stop driving.
I was going to be an aunt. Two times over.
It’s a good fucking thing that I was in my car because the decibel my already extremely not quiet voice reached piercing heights (my whisper is your regular “inside” voice) It would most definitely have caused anyone around me immediate deafness.
I was so fucking happy, thrilled, excited, for myself (oh, and Sister CBXB and Bro-in-Law of course) discovering that I would forever get to spoil a little boy and a little girl. I loved them before ever laying eyes on them.
Then I laid eyes on them.
My heart basically exploded and in the very best way possible, I knew that life was never, ever going to be the same. They immediately became my number ones (my sister is my number two because she got married and had the kids, taking all pressure off of me – yay – and now I can adopt all of the cats in the world).
Honoring the liveliest duo I know, here’s…
Cheers to Five Years
It seemed like yesterday you arrived
How can you be turning five?
Were big fun galore
Princess B, you have a flair for sparkles like me
My sweet knight in shining armour you are, Prince B
Getting a pic with the two of you has never been easy
You’ve never not enjoyed giving my face graffiti
There’s so much I’ve loved watching you do
Yet so much more is in store for you two!
You’ve got me in your corner whenever you need
Anyone hurts you
The deal with me
The loves of my life, it’s simple but true
Most of all, I love you just for being you.
Aunt Juju sends kisses. The fur babies send hugs.
All of us send five years of big love!
Celebrate BIG my favorite two!
Aunt Juju and the rest of the world
