N is for Niece and Nephew
My niece and nephew are truly brilliant. I absolutely adore this cheeky pair. I'm no pro with kids, when they cry I have no idea what to do. But give me a happy child and I'm fine, I'm always up for an inside play area - I'm fortunately small enough to climb through all the tiny spaces to keep up with the kids! A trip to the beach never goes amiss, and I've developed a true hatred for Max and Ruby (though I don't even feel half the pain from this programme that my sister and brother-in-law do).
They're such characters. Children are hilarious, my niece at 5 years old has done and said some classic things. She's a real poser when there's a camera about, she loves going to the park and the beach. And she's a real mardy bum and drama queen. When ever she hurts herself by the tinniest little bit - something that you know doesn't really hurt - I always laugh about it, to make her laugh too. 90% of the time this works, unless alas it's a day for drama.
Me and my adorable niece last summer all ready to do Race for Life in our PJ's!
My nephew is an adventurer. He loves searching through my sisters cupboards, pulling out the pots and pans. He loves getting his hands on anything, when he visits my house he grabs all of my dad's guitars then him and my niece put on a show for us. It's always pretty noisy when these two come to visit, and most of the time, I don't mind.
I can't imagine life without these two, I couldn't imagine my sister and brother-in-law without these two. I hope when I'm older and have my own children, my children are very close to this brilliant pair!
