Aunts and Nieces -- Unique Relationship

There is something special about the relationship between aunties and nieces that is like no other. The aunt plays a unique role in a little girl's life, different than a mother's role or a grandmother's role. The aunt, on the other hand, is usually a peer to the mother, and equal in the family hierarchy, unlike the grandmother, who is one generation up. She is the Mom's equal.

The aunt knew the Mom first, and the niece is born into that female relationship, whatever that might be. If the parent was close to the aunt beforehand, the niece will benefit from that relationship. If that relationship is strained, the one with the nieces may be a bit distant, unless the two make an effort to repair it. The aunt is a woman in the child's life that will always be there: through moves and changes, ups and downs. Unlike friends, who can come and go, aunts will always be aunts: a steady presence in a niece's life.

The aunt has known the child as long as the Mom and Dad has. She knows the history of the family, but from a different angle. The aunt knows the family history, too, and can be a powerful sense of perspective to a niece who wants to know more about the pre-her life of Mommy and Daddy.

Aunties are another adult, a steady adult in that child''s life.

Jlou, I am sending this along to my nieces in each of their birthday cards. I am lucky enough to be blessed with 5, all adults now. We are all close. I have always been inspired watching babies grow into adults and all that happens in between. The circle of life is so powerful & impressive. Thank you for posting this one.
