What To Expect When Your Expecting To Be An Aunt...AGAIN

Updated on February 20, 2020

or Tee Tee if you hear my nieces calling me. Family is and will always be the light of my life.

Im about to be an auntie...AGAIN!

So you're going to be an aunt... again!? All the love, all the rewards and none of the dirty diapers. Being my nieces 'Tee Tee' has been one of life's biggest blessings, and I wouldn't change it for the world. But what happens when you're quickly approaching thirty and that clock of yours is ticking louder and louder and being an auntie just isn't enough?

Earlier this month my family got amazing news. After 3 long years of trying and hearing a baby wasn't in the works, my brother and sister in law are now expecting their third child (Cue the fireworks)! Once I heard the news my heart was racing with excitement for them. Again, being an aunt is so rewarding and to love on another baby was exactly what the doctor ordered. Not shortly after I got off FaceTime I heard the dreaded sound...that clock!

So now I sit in my empty apartment, beyond excited for my family but also thinking about how bad I'm wanting exactly what everyone else is getting. (Lets back up for a sec.... No, I am not trying and nor do I plan on trying just yet) but its one thing I've always dreamt of.

I was asked by my mom at a very young age, "if you could be anything in this world, what would it be?" my answer, without a doubt, was to be a mom. Becoming a mom has been something I have wanted for a long time and something I have been so patiently waiting on. So how do you stop yourself from thinking about your wants and needs and be excited for everyone else's? This has been a struggle for me these last couple months. Im pushing thirty and my fever is full blown, is a niece or a nephew going to quickly cure me in a few months? Who am I to wallow and complain? I'd love to hear of others who are facing these same "issues" (if that's something we even call it) and what you are doing to push forward and stay your positive and vibrant self.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that our angel baby is the light at the end of this tunnel and the dirty diapers and newborn cries are the medicine I need for this dang fever.
