The end

Don’t worry, it’s just the end of my NaBloPoMo experiment. Apparently you all want me to keep it up. As of this writing, 60% want updates more than twice a week and 40% want updates twice weekly. Go vote if you haven’t already.

I am prepared for Baby Cain’s arrival. I have my ‘It’s a Boy!’ banner and bottle of champagne at the ready if he arrives while I am on this coast. My co-workers are on alert to celebrate if I am in the library when the call comes in (right?). I have advice from my friends and loved ones. I have directives from his parents.

Some of you have expressed surprise/amusement at how seriously I am taking my aunthood. I will respond by saying this is one of those things that trumps other things in life. There’s going to be a human that I have above normal access to and influence on and I plan to make the most of it.

If he ever gets to see some of this project in the future, I want him to know how excited I was for his arrival and I want him to feel special. He’s going to have the greatest parents on earth (next to mine) and be a very lucky little guy.

So stay tuned for pictures and stories. Also stay tuned for 2 to 3 posts a week (hopefully?) on this site.

I already love you nephew and I can only grow to love you more.

You’re right to be psyched for the impending aunthood – being an aunt is excellent. Some thoughts on the gift-giving aspect…getting birthday gifts to the nephew by the birthday itself turns out to be a big plus. I am revered in my sister’s household for my knack of getting the presents to arrive on the actual day of the birthday. When trying to impress the parents go for quality over quantity, but if you’re actually trying to win over the kid himself – kids (over 18 months of age) prefer lots of cheap crap to 1 small really expensive gift. Henry is still ecstatic over the $10 crate of plastic animals he received from his cheap parents on his birthday. Bring on the new nephew!
