17 Reasons Being An Aunt Is The Best... And The Best Form Of Birth Control
Amira Totah

I have been an aunt since I was 12 years old and I have loved every single minute of it! People think that being an aunt comes with minimal responsibility, and they are right for the most part, but it's a lot deeper than that. When you have the most perfect little humans who follow you around, look up to you and love you so much — that's such a rewarding feeling.

There is a fine line of responsibility and fun, which makes being an aunt so cool! I don't have kids of my own and I'm nowhere near that stage in my life so being there for my nieces and nephew is a really special feeling. Kids are so unique and surprising, getting to watch them grow up and have some sort of influence on them makes me excited to see what their little lives hold.

There is nothing better than being an auntie and here are a few reasons why.

1. You get to be the fun one

12. You can teach them important lessons

13. You get to enjoy the quality silence once you send them home to their parents

Giphy

14. You learn to accept their brutally honest comments

15. You learn that bribery is real

Giphy

16. You get to avoid diaper duty

17. You get unconditional love (most of the time)

While kids can be a pain in the rear end, the fact that they are family makes it all worth it!
