Today is a special……VERY special day! One year ago on this day, I had another role added on to my already long list – I became a Grand-Aunty to a bubbly young lad, Amanvir. His latest look is that of a sumo wrestler but I think his father would probable want him to be a footballer. Hence, husband and I got him his very first personalized Liverpool football jersey and a special edition World Cup miniature football. Don’t you think it’s absolutely adorable??
As I look at the jersey I realize how quickly time flies – I was only seven-years old when my first nephew came along and 11 months later, Aman’s father.
What does it mean to be a grand-aunty? Is there anything special that I should be doing? Am I doing enough? Am I doing too much? Do grand-aunties have the same passport to spoil the kid rotten the way grandparents have? I’m not sure – but I don’t care! Spoil him I will and discipline him too – I will!
This past week I’m most grateful for the lovely family that I have. I have so many roles in my life – but perhaps that of a daughter, sister, wife, sister-in-law, aunty, grand-aunty are the ones that keep me grounded. No matter what role I play in the business-world, at home I know I can just be ME!
