In one week I get to see two of the small children who call me Aunt. When her mommy told her I was coming, Clara was kind enough to say that she'll let me sit in the "big chair" (pictured).
If that's not a gesture of true devotion, I don't know what is.
Recently, I chatted on the phone with this small child. It was a part of the Cool Aunt Conspiracy to let her stay up just a few more minutes past bedtime. I know, I do what I can.
