@MrsEdamame:  You’re the Aunt and not the Mom, that makes opening up a whole lot easier sometimes!

Good work and keep it up, you might be the person he ends up calling someday after doing something stupid but you’re the lifesaver to prevent the stupidness going to a new level.

Stuff like getting really drunk, but having someone to call for the ride home.

My nieces are all 3 and under so none of that for this aunty yet but I hape some day! I think it’s great that you two have the lines of communication open and he feels safe talking to you!! It’s great for a teenage boy to have an adult in his life that he can trust and connect with!

That’s great. My niece is 3 (today was her birthday) and my nephew/godson is 18 months. Our communication consists of shrieking and singing at us over FaceTime and the occasional nonsense text message when they steal mommy’s phone but I love them fiercely. I cannot wait until we move and get to see them in person more than a few times a year.

Yay for being the cool Auntie!

@MrsEdamame:  My niece is 18 now, and occasionally over the years she’d open up to me about stuff regarding her mom (who is um, not the best person), her own personal life, or asking me questions about the family. I guess because I’m only 15 years older than her, she feels that I’m easier to talk to in lieu of her grandparents or something. 🙂

@MrsEdamame:  That is awesome 🙂 Boys that age usually don’t like to talk a lot, you must be one great aunt! I have one niece who is 7 months right now and I hope to be someone she can open up to when she is of talking age 😉 Being an aunty is the best!
