21 Thoughts You Have After Finding Out Your Sister Is Pregnant

The only thing better than being a sister, is being an aunt.

21 Thoughts You Have After Finding Out Your Sister Is Pregnant
The Bump

Finding out you're going to be an aunt is one of the most exciting times of your life! You get to experience the beauty of pregnancy vicariously through her, as well as be her hand to hold along the way. It means planning gender reveal parties, baby showers and spending way too much money on your unborn niece or nephew, already. It means random texts from your sister when she's being emotional, and random snapshots of Pinterest ideas from you.

When you first hear that you're going to be an auntie, you're rushed with so many thoughts and emotions; Excitement, happiness and a little bit of shock. You don't know whether to scream, cry or jump up and down (maybe all of the above).

If you're anything like me, these were the first 21 thoughts you had after finding out you were a soon-to-be aunt:

1. You're pregnant?!

2. Omg. Congratulations! *tears of joy*

3. Wait. You're old enough to have a baby?

4. We're having children already?

5. Should I be having kids by now?

6. What am I doing with my life?


8. This baby is going to be so spoiled, and you already know it.

9. I hope I'm their favorite.


11. I want a baby...

12. OK, maybe I'm not ready for a baby.

13. I still want one though...

14. I will just steal my niece or nephew every chance I get, instead.

15. When do I get to know the gender?

16. At least how long? 16 weeks? That's so far...

17. I don't wanna only buy gender neutral stuff.

18. Okay just a few...hundred.


20. I love this baby so much already.

21. I can't wait to meet you.

So, Congratulations! You're going to be an aunt. You're going to love that baby with everything in you; You'll hug that child like a mother, keep their secrets like a best friend, kick their butt when they need it, and love them even more than you love their mother. The only thing better than being a sister, is being an aunt.

"An aunt is an awesome, understanding and nice teacher." -- Unknown

A special congratulations to Diedra and David! I cannot wait to meet your little bundle of joy. xoxo

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
