I haven’t written an entry for a while as I’ve been concentrating on getting better, and I’ve also been in a bit of an emotional well and found it hard to write. Though things are improving slowly but surely.
So, on my return to the blog – I present you with a funny story about our nephew.
My mother-in-law was explaining our family tree to our nephew (he is five years old). She started with herself and my father-in-law as Grandma and Pop, and then had two branches down to Kirby and my sister-in-law.
My sister-in-law had a line to her husband (our nephew’s Mum and Dad) and from there a line dropped down to our nephew.
That all made sense to him.
Then my mother-in-law drew a line from Kirby to me (as Uncle and Aunty) and explained that we don’t have any children.
I can imagine my nephew as he stood there, rather indignantly, and stated “They DO have children – they have ME!”
He is a precious, precious little boy and I couldn’t love him more if he was my own son.
