I woke up, with a phone call in the middle of the night, “Can you come to my place right away” spoke my friend from the other end. I tried to get myself together, and asked her “What happened is everything ok?  Are you fine?  “Will talk once you are here “she said in a hurried voice and hung up.
I had no idea to what had happened and anticipating that it could take me a bit long to return; I woke my husband and informed him about the situation. As the friend’s house was only 3 blocks away, I told him that it would be ok; I would drive down and declined his help to drive me over.

We brood and cry over hundreds of issues during the day, tout a pink ribbon over our handbags or stick it over our clothes and raise awareness. But do we really do anything about it?  We should have!! We are the women of 21st century and we’re supposed to know about it.

Me As An Aunt ....

Becoming an aunt is completely out of one's control. when your sister or sister- in -laws become moms , you become an aunt. There is no planning or great thought to the occasion. It just happens and changes your life . Something like this happened to me as well 13 years ago, when my 3 adorable nieces were born , twin daughters to my sister and 1 to my sister-in law. bringing in 3 angels , in our families was a moment.....

I love this role of an aunt in my life, and when I go back down the memory lane, I remember those afternoons when occasionally I was entrusted with the care of these little ones. My sister and sister- in - law would invariably return home to witness us either playing unimaginable stuff, dancing to the weirdest tunes or eating something that can vaguely be counted as nutritious. I loved those afternoons , and cherish those moments till date.....

I seem to be in love with  that lenient, relaxed approach the aunt hood offers. Over the years , as they have grown , I don't have to be a disciplinary and tell them " Don't eat more chocolates "!! or "Shut that TV down !!!? " instead our conversation is more about " Howzzz Life "( the latest lingo used  ),  or  "Which song is most viewed on Youtube"?.

We enjoy window shopping and trying out those outfits ( pretending to be super models !!). Staying awake till mid night talking or watching TV is on our favorite list. Finally I have to  use a tired avowal that I cannot stay awake any more, or the mommy tool , which goes like  " Mom 's going to be really upset if  we don't sleep ".

I take pleasure in being silly with them and let them be sillier!!!! . I like to spoil them like crazy, doing all the things, their parents would not like at all . Isn't that being an aunt is all about ???

Seeing them grow and watching who they become is the best thing in the life. Not to forget , that all 3 are different in every way and that's what makes them all great.

Because of distance I don't see them often , but those 2 to 3 visits a year  are essential part of my life. I share bond with them , a bond brought together by blood, but stays together by love.

I must say , we are building a unique relationship of our own, separate from the rest of the family......
