I've never been an aunt.
I've had to do all the rule making.
Now I get to do the rule breaking.
So What do you do for hours upon hours of waiting for the cousin you've been hearing about for nine months?
Show everyone how you'll look when there's a baby in your tummy.
Then when you break your mothers resolve, and the labor and delivery room floor is now an appropriate place to lay and draw..........
make beautiful greeting cards for your laboring aunt.
And if the monitor still looks like gentle waves instead of a hurricane
eat an entire box of Sugar Babies (except the one you grudgingly give your aunt Jess and the few that Mommy took when you weren't looking).
And after a full day of excitement, patience, impatience, and fighting over the one toy you didn't both get for Christmas........you get this........
